Sometimes I use dictation to help students focus on spelling and sound patterns in English.   This is one variation.

 

Word Family Dictation:

1.     I draw two columns on the board and write a word family at the top of each column. Students copy the columns on paper.

2.     I say a word and students repeat it.  Students then identify which column the word  belongs in.

3.     Students sound out and write the word on their papers.

4.     I ask the class to spell the word aloud as I write it in the appropriate column on the board. 

Here are some contrasting word family dictation options:
