Have your student prepared with paper and pencil.
If your student doesn't write with pencil yet, then use crayon.
If your student doesn't write with crayon either, then make lowercase Alphabet letters on individual index cards. Make several copies of the letters that are repeated most often, especially the vowels. Then when you dictate letter sounds, your student should use the cards in proper order to form the letter combinations which you will say.
PREPARE FOR DICTATION! Make sure that you have gone over the following in advance. Your student cannot learn from you unless you know what you are teaching.
DICTATION OF SHORT VOWEL WORDS:
THE STUDENT WHO CANNOT YET WRITE SHOULD USE MANIPULATIVES TO MAKE THE WORDS. i.e. Individual letters that have been cut out are put together in the form of a word, by laying the letters side by side! Letters can be made from index cards as instructed in other lessons or they can be written on construction paper and cut out.
Dictate the following
words, one word at a time.
Say each word clearly and slowly.
Give your student time to write or form the word.
Correct each word before going to the next.
