This is an excellant resource to be combined with the dictionary. Children tend to be repetitive and this is a good way to help them select other words to use in a story or report. Also, my greatniece found it fun just to study the words, illustrations, and the choices. She is in first grade. They are assigned a writing tast each week. I have this as a ready referance where she does creative writing. I do not think this is in her classroom but I would srongly recommend each student in the class have one to refer to and to learn its use as a tool in writnig. Budget limitations challenge my suggestion. Ir would be a worthwhile donation if someone asks for a suggestion.
This is the best Thesaurus I've seen. I am a special education teacher and have tried several dictionaries and reference items. This book has a crystal-clear lay-out that my students find very user-friendly. My son uses it as a quick dictionary reference. It is less complex to understand than most dictionaries. He willingly and voluntarily looks up unknown vocabulary. Good for teaching synonyms and antonyms (color-coded). Definitely a bargain for the price.
