Third graders receive dictionaries from Boise Rotary Club

 In its fourth year participating in the national Dictionary Project, the Rotary Club of Boise will present ‘A Student’s Dictionary and Gazetteer’ to each student in the Adams, Cynthia Mann, Jefferson, Whitney, Trail Wind, Riverstone International and tentatively Collister schools’ third grade classes. The dictionary includes biographies of all the U.S. Presidents including President Obama, facts about the 50 states, planets, and solar system, maps of the seven continents and more, including the longest word in the English language, which contains 1,909 letters.

The Dictionary Project, whose goal is to improve reading ability and comprehension across the U.S., has distributed over 14 million dictionaries to students since 1995.
