Free printable picture dictionaries for young writers and ESL students including Farm theme
Young children love to use these colorful mini picture dictionaries. They feel a sense of pride when they are able to use the picture clues and “read” the words. Children also enjoy copying the words into their own stories.

When I use these printables in my Beginning to Read program, I print the picture dictionaries onto Card Stock, it is heavier than paper and more durable. Once printed, I use my Scotch® Cool Laminator to protect them and make them last.

We hope that parents and teachers will share these themed word lists to help young writers. Providing children with vocabulary for a variety of themes will help them write confidently and creatively, with rich vocabulary. Our picture dictionaries will allow children to focus on story-telling rather than spelling conventions.
