    tanya Since I saw you peeking into the forums, any update on a MP 3-7 dictionary? Also, do you have any details on edition of the American Heritage Dictionary recommended for 8th and up?

    We were putting together a grammar school dictionary, but it got sidelined for other projects. Maybe I can get a teacher to finish it this summer. For 8th grade, we would recommend students to use an actual dictionary (we recommend American Heritage). By this age, they should be able to discern the correct meaning of a word based on its context in the story.

    Just checking in to see if this is still in the works? I've been skipping some vocabulary with my kids or just telling them the answers because using an actual dictionary is so time-consuming. I would love to see this get off the ground, and would definitely be willing to purchase one!

    Is anyone beginning to wonder if we should just start combining the dictionaries from 3rd - 8th? With so many of us working with modified cores, would it make more sense to start putting one book together so we can just bind it up ourselves and that way it moves with them from grade to grade. Sure, at this point we have a much bigger dictionary. Or maybe combine the Grammar years in to one...Just rambling here.

    I wonder if an excel pivot table would be useful here.

    I need a Classical Studies 1 dictionary. I could help make that if there isn't.

    The grammar school dictionary is still in the works, but it has been pushed aside for the summer. We are overwhelmed at the moment, as you can imagine.

    Good idea to include the words from the books not in the cores. This has turned into a huge project! We appreciate all the ideas and support. It is so much more difficult to create than the second grade one since it needs to look more like an adult dictionary!

    Thank you for tagging me! I couldn't find the post looking for The Moffats. Eve Here it is! It has all of the 3M literature included including The Moffats, although the front photo doesn't show The Moffats, RunnerJoy recently added those words.
