Fruitland Grange Community Service Activities
Words for Thirds
This program puts a new dictionary in the hands of every third grader in the school and their teacher. During the presentation students are challenged to look up new facts and to share their favorite words. The dictionary has reference tables and maps so it is more than just spelling and learning the parts of speech.
Fruitland Grange buys a dictionary for every student in at least one school at a cost of about $1.25 for each dictionary if bought in bulk.
For a generation raised on digital everything, the students are surprisingly excited about their low tech gift.
