Literacy

Today we're going to creating our own dictionary based on vocabulary found in folk tales, or more specifically the Brer Rabbit stories by Enid Blyton. One think you might have already noticed about dictionaries is that to help the reader they're in alphabetical order - see exactly what we mean by alphabetical order here, especially ordering two words that start with the same letter; you have to move onto the next letter!

Here are your folk tale words - don't forget dictionaries tell you what type of word they are (noun, verb, adjective or adverb) and give an example of it being used in a sentence. See if you can use an actual dictionary, or failing that, have a look at the Cambridge dictionary here; https://dictionary.cambridge.org/
