Long Distance Dictation
All you need for this activity is one piece of paper with a short interesting story of approx. 6 to 10 sentences graded for your level. Use a short joke.
Partner the students up. Ask one student from each partner ship to join you in the hall way. When half the class is out in the hall with you, you post the story there. Let the students know they have to "transport" the story to their partner who must write. Ask them, "How many words can your brain hold?"
Some students will get so into it they'll start racing; ask them to walk so as not to crash into anyone.
