Learning Objective

Students will be able to recognize which words in a sentence need to be capitalized.

Introduction

Review the parts of a sentence (naming part and telling part). Have students drag the telling part to the correct naming part to form a complete sentence. Then they will read sentences and determine if they are complete or incomplete. Finally, read several sentences and have students use the eraser tool to reveal the capital letters.

Instruction

Explain that a sentence always begins with a capital letter. Have students drag the correct letters to begin each of the sentences shown. Next, explain that the word "I" should always be capitalized. Drag the uppercase Is to replace the lowercase Is in the passage. Then go over names. All names start with a capital letter. Drag the circle to all the letters in the sentences that should be capitalized. After this, explain that the names of places also start with capital letters.

Quiz

Students respond to 10 questions. They must select which word requires a capital letter, and must select the words to be capitalized in a sentence.

Closing

Have students drag the words to the correct column, "Capitalize" or "Don't Capitalize." Finally, read the passage and have students check for correct capitalization.
