As part of our language arts curriculum, both older girls take dictation at least once per week.  Dictation is always on some notable excerpt of literature, such as  The Swiss family Robinson. I’m a fan of this activity because it incorporates so many facets of language – listening, writing, spelling, reading, and editing, all great skill for budding scholars!
