What is a dictation sentence?
It’s very common for children to try to learn their list of words for the Friday spelling test, then forget them once the next week rolls around. Using sentences can help.
Sentences help children put words into context and remember them better.
Coming up appropriate, original sentences can be difficult for younger kids. They have to fully comprehend the word, use their creativity, and correctly form a new sentence. Dictating a sentence separates the spelling aspect from the grammatical and creative aspects of writing.
Dictation sentences are a “next level” approach to teaching spelling and should always use words the student already knows.
- When teaching spelling to kindergarten and 1st grade students, always start with groups of short, similar words. Well, spell, and tell are examples of three words that group well together.
- Next, progress to dissimilar words (for example, spell, girl, and dog are not related).
- Then, add dictation sentences using words the student already knows.
- Finally, have students write original sentences.
