The correct use of ga, go, gu, the ñ, the f, the d, as well as the capitalization of proper names, cities and after the period are just some of the things that boys and girls will learn from 7 and 8 years. That is why we put at your disposal this list of dictations for second grade children that delve into these concepts in a fun and simple way.

As always happens, quality and not quantity prevail, that is, if your child or your students do a lot of dictations but without paying attention and in a hurry to finish soon to be able to go play, they will be of no use. The best thing is to do one a day, slowly and paying attention what you write. Once he's finished, tell him to read it out loud and ask you what he doesn't quite understand.

Practice with the dictations that we propose here and so that the children gain a lot of fluency in reading and writing. Do not miss the poems at the end, beautiful and ideal as memory exercises.

In the previous year the students learned to differentiate between g and j. In this second year, we must delve into that learning and combine it further with the use of c and g. Take note of these funny dictations.

1 My uncle Agustín has a sore throat, that's why he takes orange peel while his cat meows next to him and shakes his cup, what a curmudgeon!

2 Cecilia has a rooster that crows every morning to say good morning. The goat and the zebra wake up grumpy.

3 Rooster, Cat and Swan are close friends, so they always go to the park together to play.

Ga-go-gu. These three combinations often cost a lot to second graders. With dictates like these all your doubts will be resolved and you will be able to practice your calligraphy. Ask them to write slowly so that they can be diligent in their writing.

4 I don't like chickpeas at all, I just want to eat sweets.

5 I have to bundle up before going out because it's cold, so, neither short nor lazy, I put on my gloves, cap and scarf. I'm ready to ride.

6 When the month of August is over, the cicada sings its best song.

7 My mother says that I am much more handsome than Agapito.

As in the previous example, using ge-gi is often difficult. It is just a matter of practice to learn it properly. Suggest these fun dictations to your second year students and ask them to illustrate the exercise with a nice drawing.

8 There is a giant who likes to do gymnastics on the sand on the beach.

9 Nothing around here, nothing there, I do magic like no other and an angel and a cat appear.

10 I want to learn to play the guitar as well as the general does.

Emphasize each sound when you dictate these phrases to your child so he can write them correctly. We suggest some Dictation exercises that focus on working on the letter ñ.

11 A boy and a girl go to the river together to cast their rod, the girl wears a high bow and the boy an orange sweater. After fishing they eat pineapple together. How rich it was!

12 The spider cuts its nails in the bathroom while the fly lights the fire in the woodshed. The grasshopper awaits them and plays with his favorite doll.

It is during the first grade of primary school that students begin to distinguish between upper and lower case. But in the second year these exercises must be strengthened with a little longer dictations like the ones we show you here.

13 Marta has a dog called Yako, she likes to run and play catch. Sofía has a cat called Pachín, she spends the whole day at home sleeping. Sonia has a parakeet that sings every morning to ask for water. They are all neighbors and, at night, when nobody sees them, they go out together for a walk. That is why the Pachín cat is sleepy during the day!

14 Silvia has gone to live in London with her family. He says he likes it but sometimes he gets angry because it rains a lot and he can't go outside. At school we miss her so much. We have told the professor that if we can go to see her in London as an end-of-term trip, he said yes!

Little by little you should start with the use of punctuation marks, the first one being the comma, since it is the simplest. To give the child a clue as to where to put the comma, pause a little longer between sentences.

15 Sara has in her room a stuffed animal, a ludo, a headband, a robot and a goldfinch that sings very well.

16 I'm going on a trip to Paris, Buenos Aires and Mexico City. So I pack my clothes, my paintings, my watch, my handkerchief, and my favorite book.

17 Chocolate, pasta, corn and sugar are the things I like the most. However, my mother says to eat soup, chicken, vegetables and lots of vegetables.

The d is another letter that it is usually difficult to learn for children in second grade. The dictations that we propose here are perfect to solve it. Read the entire sentence at first, so that the children know what the dictation is going to be about, and then cut it up so that the little ones can write it down.

18 Give me the ointment that I'm going to put in Daniela's ear because it hurts a lot.

19 I say many things because I love to talk. Paula is on a diet and her peeled potato is on.

20 I have to roll the dice, Diego goes after, Diana awaits her turn impatiently.

With these dictates the boys and girls of the first cycle of primary they will know how to use the f in any sentence. These are some of the short and fun dictations that we propose.

21 Federico is skinny, he hardly eats anything. Instead, he runs a lot when he sees the pirates approach the lighthouse. It is then that he lights a lantern.

22 The celebrity party is about to begin, steaks, cake and lots of laughs. Felix reads the tale of the ugly Pirate Redbeard. Felisa and the whole family have a great time at the celebration.

23 Felisa eats Filipino noodles every night. Why does Felisa like noodles so much? He says they are fabulous.

Choose one, tell it to your child or your students, and then ask them to read it out loud and try to memorize it. It will help them strengthen their spelling, memory and concentration. Dictations have many benefits, especially when they are in verse.

24 Pegasi, cute pegasi,

rocking horses.

I knew as a child

the joy of spinning

on a red steed,

on a night out.

In the dusty air

the candles sparkled,

and the blue night burned you

ode strewn with stars.

Fragment of "Pegasos, cute pegasos". Antonio Machado

when he is hoarse

imitate the duck.

when a mouse appears

and invites him little by little

to watch television.

My cat

it's fluffy cushion

next to me.

Fragment of the poem "my cat". Alma Velasco

26 Butterfly of the air,

you're beautiful,

air butterfly

golden and green.

Butterfly of the air,

Stay there, there, there! ...

You don't want to stop

you don't want to stop.

golden and green.
