Sample Dictations/spelling tests Set 1 T 3


Free samples of dictations/spelling test for Term 3, Set 1 (years 1 – 6).  The first exercise has one missing word in each of the sentences and can be used as a spelling test.  The second exercise has space for a full sentence to be written, using the spelling word in different types of sentences.  See the Product Description below for more information.



There are three pages for each set of spelling words.  A teacher's script and two student dictation exercises.  These are linked to the spelling lists for Term 3 Set 1 (Years 1 - 6).  Different sentence types are used eg statements, commands and questions (along with the relevant punctuation).

Teachers read aloud the short sentence from the script.  In the first exercise the students write a single missing word in each sentence. This focuses on spelling in context.

The second exercise is aligned with National Curriculum requirements Writing: Word Structure & Spelling 'write from memory simple sentences, dictated by the teacher, that include words and punctuation taught so far.'

To make the exercises more fun, each dictation includes some illustrations relevant to the spellings.
