Rotary donates dictionaries to third graders

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

The three Rotary Clubs of Shoreline have a project to bring new dictionaries to every third grade student in the Shoreline School District, feeling that the hardcover, beautifully printed books bring words alive for the children. Rotarians deliver the dictionaries to each classroom and enjoy helping as the children look up a few words and share their findings. The teachers often use the new books for a curriculum week in the classroom before they go home with the students. In the thank you letters the Rotarian receive from the children, there are many stories of these books becoming a reference for siblings and sometimes the whole family.
