3rd Grade Students in Buffalo County receive scholastic dictionary
KEARNEY, NE – The Kearney Dawn Rotary Club has completed the 7th annual Dictionary Project, distributing scholastic dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in Buffalo County.
Roxanne Talbitzer, 3rd grade teacher at Shelton may have said it best stating, “In this age of technology, more and more students prefer to just type the word onto a word document and use auto correct instead of looking up a word. Third grade is the perfect age to introduce students to all the various uses and value of a dictionary. Thank you so very much for your interest in the education of our students and encouraging students to use dictionaries, and for the service you provide!”
