Dear Primary School Teachers,

Are you looking for an engaging and interactive way to teach grammar to your Year 4 and Year 5 students? Look no further! We have created a fantastic free worksheet called 'Dictionary Work' that will not only boost their vocabulary but also improve their understanding of different word types and dictionary usage.

The 'Dictionary Work' worksheet is an exciting tool designed to help young learners practice and reinforce their grammar skills in a fun and meaningful way.

To complete the worksheet, students arrange the given words into alphabetical order in the table provided at the bottom of the worksheet. This exercise not only sharpens their alphabetical skills but also introduces them to new words that can expand their vocabulary.


After arranging the words alphabetically, students will identify the type of each given word. For example, is the word a verb, noun, or adjective? This activity helps them understand the roles and functions of different word types in sentences.


The final task for the students is to write a dictionary meaning for each word they've identified. This step encourages them to use a dictionary and become familiar with its format while honing their comprehension and writing skills.
