Whoever signed us up for those dictionaries, tell them “Thanks” with all my heart! They came just when we are learning about that crazy “schwa” sound & ohhhhh, did they love looking up the schwa sound & syllables in “Their” dictionary! It wouldn’t have been any fun to look all that up in those old classroom dictionaries! This was the best year for teaching that kinky schwa sound & accented syllables!
