Dictated Writing Activity
This activity is usually done after a Read Aloud Think Aloud. The students work with their table partners. Students are given prompts to think about and then they are asked to write a sentence with their partner using the prompts. The teacher then puts up the thesis statement for the paragraph and the students decide in what order the rest of the sentences need to go to make a paragraph. Not only does this help the students develop better comprehension, but it will also assist them with their writing skills.
