Dictation Sentences 96:01-10

USCIS S96:01-10

Here are ten sentences for reading and dictation. These sentences are based on answers to the USCIS 96:01-10 Questions. Instead of phrasal responses, the answers are given in complete sentences.

1. The colors of our flag are red, white, and blue.
2. There is one star for each state.
3. There are 50 stars on our flag.
4. The stars on our flag are white.
5. There are 13 stripes on our flag.

10. Independence Day celebrates independence from England.

You can use the S01-10 Dictation Handout when you listen to the S01-10 mp3.

Practice reading the sentences aloud, then ask a friend to dictate the senteces to you. For fun, read the answer first, then try to remember the questions. Asking questions is an important skill for Citizenship.
