Another great tool for building vocabulary is the Photographic Dictionary. This site would work well for grades 3-8. The photographic dictionary illustrates over five thousand common words with
beautiful photos, and has many more common words sorted into categories. You can use this site as a learning tool or a children's picture
dictionary, or just to browse to look at the pictures!
This dictionary is for the very youngest of our students or perhaps would be good to use as an ESL or foreign language tool. Students can click on a category of words. They then can click on individual pictures and each picture will pronouce the name of the image. Very cute!
