Spanish interactive 'zero error' dictation - Juan y su amiga Gabi

This activity is an interactive ‘zero error’ dictation. It brings together a wide range of sound-spelling correspondences (SSCs) previously taught in NCELP Spanish phonics materials. The same text could also be used as a phoneme monitoring activity (tallying how many times a certain phoneme is heard in the passage) or for a dictogloss (note taking, either in Spanish or English, and text reconstruction in small groups).
