Dictionary Skills: Alphabetizing Guide Words

Guide words are words printed at the top of the pages of a dictionary to indicate the alphabetical range of the words that fall on them. In this worksheet, students will practice using this helpful convention — and work on their spelling skills — by matching words to the pages they would appear on in a dictionary. Designed for second and third graders, this worksheet is a fun, hands-on way to help students understand how dictionaries are organized and how people can use them to search for unfamiliar words.
