Dictation Passages PowerPoint - Year 2

$4.99 or Free on Plus | 22 pages (PDF, PowerPoint, Word)|Grade: 2

A 22 slide editable PowerPoint Template which can be used for a range of dictation activities.

Dictation is a valuable teaching and learning tool. It enables students to apply punctuation and grammar conventions they have been taught to a ‘real text’ context. It also allows students to fine-tune their listening and editing skills.

These 20 dictation passages align directly to the Australian Curriculum for Year 2 English. The punctuation and grammar conventions addressed in this teaching resource include:

  • capital letters –proper nouns (slides 3-6)
  • commas to separate lists (slides 7-10)
  • connecting words (slides 11-14)
  • prefixes (slides 15-18)
  • suffixes (slides 19-22).

A marking sheet has been provided for teachers.
