In this activity, students read and examine interesting passages about the 2018 Winter Olympics as they practice 4 sets of capitalization rules and master this skill. This worksheet focuses on the difference between proper and common nouns. Like all my products, the writing has been crafted to engage the quirky, sometimes snarky, middle-school mind.
--Definitions and Answer Keys included!
--READY TO PRINT (copy at 85% to glue into interactive notebooks)!
**TWO OPTIONS to help your students master this skill and provide you with a quick grade!
1) Use Page 2 as one week’s worth of warmups or exit tickets
2) Use Page 4 as a ready-to-go assessment of student mastery
BOTH versions provide endless opportunities for extended lessons and purposeful discussions about close reading, writing, punctuation, and text connections. Consider using the passages for student collaboration, competition, or to get students moving around your classroom!
TEKS Focus (Oral and Written Conventions/Handwriting, Capitalization, and Punctuation); 18(A), 20(A), 21(A/B), 22(B): Students use appropriate capitalization conventions
