Material needed: a short passage/paragraph/text to be dictated
Choose an interesting passage for dictation.Explain the students that you have a bad cold today (cough or sneeze!) and that if they can’t hear a word when you sneeze or cough, they should write any word that fits the space. Read the text again sneezing or coughing in the same places. Ask students to pair up and read their passages. Volunteers read their texts to the whole class.
