Dictation

Discussion in 'English' started by VG22, Aug 22, 2011.

  1. Hi

    I am trying to find a scheme/book etc that provides dictation for primary children with the focus on the HF words. I have found lots of different things on the web but it's tricky knowing which is good and which not.

    Do the Fat Sam books cover the HF words?

    Would be very grateful for any suggestions!

    I've looked in the dictionary and I just can't find any 'HF' words.
     
  4. High Frequency - I assume.

    Oh.


    I do wish posters would not assume knowledge. I never have any.

    Anyway - dictation of HF words.


    Sounds great. Those lucky primary aged kids, eh?
