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 6 English. The punctuation and grammar conventions addressed in this teaching resource include:
- commas to separate clauses (slides 3-6)
- complex sentences (slides 7-10)
- modality (slides 11-14)
- objective and subjective language (slides 15-18)
- apostrophes of possession (slides 19-22).
A marking sheet has been provided for teachers.
