Read out some text in the target language and have the students write it down accurately. Could be a list of words, a sentence, a paragraph, a poem…just be careful to read slowly and repeat a lot. About 5 minutes’ worth of text (including repetitions) is usually the limit. Bonus: Show students the punctuation marks and their names too.
You could have students work individually or in pairs/teams.
At the end the text can be shown and students can mark each other’s or their own.
My top and middle sets really enjoy this (despite it being “really hard!”), and it has led to a lot of high-quality discussion.
