Are  you answering spelling-related questions often? If you're like most bilingual teachers, I think your answer is, "Yes, all the time!!"

I have a solution for you! You should have a Picture Dictionary in your classroom!!

What is a Picture Dictionary?

Picture Dictionary is similar to a traditional dictionary, except that each word is accompanied by an image. This means that even if a learner is unable to read the text in a standard dictionary, he or she can perform all of the 'dictionary' tasks, such as looking up an unknown word, checking spelling, or determining the meaning of a word.

Benefits of using a Picture Dictionary in your classroom

Picture dictionaries are especially beneficial to beginning writers. Your students are filled with stories in their heads. A large number of words are required for many of those stories. Because students frequently write about their lives, the picture dictionary will help them tell their stories without having to ask how to spell each and every word.
Students can use the Picture Dictionary to help them improve their spelling and writing skills. Your students will enjoy feeling independent and accomplished, and you will save time in your day by not having to spell a word for them.
