IT DOES NOT HAVE THE WORD EXPONENTIALLY! WHAT IS UP WITH THAT!?!?! I AM FILING A COMPLAINT!
I am a volunteer tutor for some 1st and 2nd graders needing just a little help in reading.. At the end of the school year I give all the 2nd graders a dictionary. This one is the best. Iti will last them for about 3 years before they get into middle school. It has phonetic pronuciation and at the back has the differennt combinations of short/long vowel sounds and the many variatons of vowels together. I know this is not the most exciting thing for a 2nd grader to receive but I have had some students tell me they are still using it after I have worked with them. Please consider it as a gift for 2nd or 3rd graders. Barnes and Noble had the best/easiest check out. I will use them again next year. I know a new version is being published in July of this year.
