Sixth grade students close the third cycle of primary school, at 11 and 12 years old, and prepare for the start of the next one, so they must know well all the spelling rules as well as have a correct spelling. That is why we have made a compilation with some short dictations for sixth graders that you can read to your students throughout the course. They will allow them to reinforce and revise the spelling of previous courses and learn new rules.

With dictations like these, sixth grade boys and girls will learn the words that are written with double “c”, those ending in 'd' and 'z' and how hiatuses, diphthongs and triphthongs are formed, among other things. Remember that these exercises should be done slowly so that they can be understood well and that two or three a day will be enough. We started!

Words that are written with a double 'c' are usually the pending subject for boys and girls in the last year of primary school. To solve all doubts, it will be enough to do dictation exercises like the ones we show you here:

1 The soccer team had said that their coach was the best of all. No wonder they won every game!

2 The teacher's satisfaction in knowing that she had done all the translation well was great.

3 He knew the lesson very well, but since he did not take the dictionary with him, he could not do all the exercises.

4 I already have the entire collection of stickers ready for action, and you?

Knowing well and without any doubt if a word ends in 'z' or in 'd' is just a matter of practice. For this reason, we put at your disposal these varied and fun dictations.

As in the previous case, learning to use these letters well is only a matter of time, to make it a little easier for sixth grade students, we have these dictation exercises.

- When I grow up I want to be a pilot! -said Paco.

And that was how the illusion of a little boy to travel the whole world began.

12 It is not easy to hide a lion under a sofa, especially since they are very big and spend many hours sleeping, so I said to my sister:

- Can you lift the couch when I say three?

"I don't think your idea will work," she replied.

- What do you think if we better hide the lion in the bathtub? -I said.

- Yes! Surely mom and dad never find it.

We got down to work getting the lion up the stairs before our parents returned, but just then ...

It is at the end of the second cycle of primary school when students must be clear about the appropriate way to train diphthongs, triphthongs and hiatuses, for this, nothing like doing these exercises.

Diphthong It occurs when two different vowels join in the same syllable. As it happens in these dictations:

13 I hear the fire so I take out my umbrella and use my comb.

14 The queen's beret is in the cage with the loud tale.

15 Laura and her sister Paula go home together after school.

Tripthong it occurs with the union of vowels in a trio giving rise to a single syllable, an open vowel between two closed ones.

16 Don't laugh since Uruguay is going to win the match.

Not even Seville has love!

31 The wind is a horse:

hear him how he runs

by the sea, by the sky.

He wants to take me: listen

how the world travels

To take me away

Hide me in your arms

for tonight alone,

while the rain breaks

against the sea and the land s

or innumerable mouth.

Listen like the wind

calls me galloping

To take me away

The wind on the island. Pablo Neruda

32 My life is broken! In combat

of so many years my breath gives way,

and the proud thought down

the idea of ​​death, that haunts him.

to be able to make the cross on my forehead,

set apart, live devoutly.
