Wilson Third Graders Receive Dictionaries from the Elks Club
Melissa Baumann, Elks Club member, presented dictionaries to third grade students at Wilson Elementary School on December 2, 2010. Dictionaries are presented to all third grade students in Sheboygan County. This is Melissa’s third year making the presentation. She says she loves seeing the look on the faces of students when she describes the content of the dictionaries.
Students were equally amazed to hear the variety of information contained in the dictionaries besides the usual words, definitions, and pronunciations. Such things as sign language, maps of the world, The Declaration of Independence, multiplication tables, the U.S. Constitution including Amendments, Gregorian, Muslim, and Hebrew calendars, the planets, and even Braille are included in the dictionaries.
