This is a 1 page, comprehensible dictation sheet. It has room for 5 dictations and illustrations. I grade based on the general message plus grammar/spelling/etc. In a novice class, I read 3 times and students write. Then after all 5 dictados have been done, students draw what they wrote. This eliminates the wait time for students to finish drawing between sentences. With more advanced classes, you can do fewer repetitions.
