I can’t remember so far back but I don’t think that 7-8 year olds were doing such complicated dictation at school. Maybe someone who supervised me at school can can correct me?
I can’t go into the details of what the mistakes were because I really have no idea. My Russian reading is OKish with the big letters but the little ones get confusing. I mean take a look at the last word in the picture below right, what the hell is that? Well I can tell you, it says ‘mishi’ which means many mice!
So getting back to the dictation, after getting in trouble from Mum and Grandma Richard put in a fantastic effort and proudly brought home a 5 for signing! Now not only was there a proud kid but also an even prouder Mum and Grandma.
