Let’s practice dictation in a fun way!
I will read a short story, at a natural pace, a couple of times. Then I will hand out the story on a piece of paper, but the story is jumbled and sentences have been divided. The students study the story for a minute and then turn the sheet over. I will read the story a third time. Students turn over the sheet of paper, cut up the jumbled phrases and re-organise the whole story.
