Tips for Dictation

We recently received an email with some great questions about Dictation. Dictation exercises are used in Essentials and in levels C and D of Foundations.

Good Morning,

I have a just-turned-8 year old on Lesson 109 in Level C of Foundations. I absolutely adore this program and I tell everyone I know about it if asked.

Somewhere along the way, I missed how to transition her from copywork to dictation. Can you please tell me the method or the conversation/ instructions I am supposed to give her for dictation? Is she supposed to know how to spell all of the words without my help? How many times do I say the sentence aloud? Do I go word by word? Do I allow her to see the sentence? I am at a loss as far as how to approach dictation.

The purpose of Foundations spelling lists

Each lesson in LOE Foundations includes a spelling list. The process of teaching students how to read and spell words is the heart of Foundations lessons, the place where all the skills they are learning come together.

However, sometimes students struggle with this portion of the lessons when their parent or teacher misinterprets the goal. Traditional spelling lists, which many of us are more used to, present words to be copied and memorized. Foundations spelling lists have an entirely different purpose: developing reading fluency through a process called spelling analysis.

Read on, and discover with us how—and why—to teach spelling analysis in Foundations.
