Jobs Riddles Reading Dictation

These activities are designed to help EFL/ESL learners in the classroom improve reading and reading comprehension while using all four language skills. This activity provides students with short riddles.

Once students have all the information, the group must work together to use the clues to figure out which job the riddle is describing. This is a reading dictation activity. In this activity, with a group of four students, one student takes the turn as the reader, and the three other students in the group listen and write what they hear.

Students can stop the reader and ask clarifying questions using the classroom language question card as a guide.

One student can read the entire story, or students can take turns. Students continue until all the paragraphs have been written into a notebook, building on all four skills at the same time.
