Do you remember the big old dictionary that sat on a tall stand in the corner of the library? Advance technology has decreased the use of learning old school skills.

The goal is not only to help students learn to read and spell words but also to understand the meaning of words, how to use words correctly, and to improve overall literacy skills.
