Dictionary Day

Dictionary Day falls on 16th October every year – Noah Webster's birthday! Born in 1758, he is considered the 'father' of America's most popular dictionary.

Although over here in the UK we don't refer to Webster's Dictionary, why not mark the day in your primary school class using your own dictionaries and these etymological resources to help you?!
