Dictation Passages PowerPoint - Year 5

Teach Starter Publishing
Word, PowerPoint, PDF | 2 pages | Years: 5

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

  • apostrophes of possession (slides 3-6)
  • subordinate clauses (slides 7-10)
  • homophones (slides 11-14)
  • less common plurals (slides 15-18)
  • question marks (slides 19-22).

A marking sheet has been provided for teachers.
