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 4 English. The punctuation and grammar conventions addressed in this teaching resource include:

  • quotation marks (slides 3-6)
  • noun groups (slides 7-10)
  • contractions (slides 11-14)
  • prepositions (slides 15-18)
  • adjectives (slides 19-22).

A marking sheet has been provided for teachers.

      Hi Courtney,

      The marking sheet is a basic template that you can use to record how many errors (if any) each student had for each dictation passage.

      If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]

      Kind regards,

      Steph
