Please Note: Grade one students are tested on the dictation sentence as part of the spelling test. Please have your child practice the dictation sentence daily. It is good to dictate the sentence orally followed by having your child repeat it to you . Once your child has listened orally two times by you, then have your child repeat the sentence back to you. Finally, have your child practice writing the sentence. Be sure he/she includes capitalizing the first word of the sentence, uses a punctuation mark at the end, spells the words correctly and uses upper and lower case handwriting accordingly. The children are doing well with this task. Your assistance is greatly appreciated in supporting this assignment for continued success.
