A major new edition – with bright new artwork and 1500 up-to-date entries – of Oxford’s authoritative First Dictionary Product Description.
The Oxford First Dictionary, now with new text and artwork, is the authoritative dictionary for children in their first years at school.
Each page is a colourful, clear and accessible, introduction to the elements of a dictionary: 1500 entries in alphabetical order, simple, easy-to-read meanings, parts of speech (noun or verb), plurals, and topical examples sentences to clarify meaning.
The full alphabet appears on every page with a coloured tab on the letter of the page – plus the dictionary quartiles are picked out in a vibrant colour.
Together, these are invaluable navigation tools for the child who is practising their alphabet skills.
Guidewords also appear on every page. All the artwork is new and each illustration adds to understanding as well as giving the book child-appeal.
Extra material at the back accurately hooks in to the curriculum at this level. It includes information on the magic ‘e’, basic punctuation to create questions and statements, simple grammar, key overused words (with alternatives) as well as opposites, words we use a lot, irregular plurals, numbers, measurement, time, seasons, and colours and shapes.
