I created this minilesson to go along with my Capital Captain writing badge, which helps “gamify” and motivate students to write more. The Capital Captain Badge encourages students to remember to use capital letters at the beginning of sentences and for proper nouns. You could also use this product without the badges to teach about capitalization. This lesson follows a gradual release approach.
Although capitalization is usually taught in younger grades, you can also use this lesson with older students who often forget to capitalize properly.
This product includes projectable pages for the minilesson, two levels of highlighting activities to complete with a partner, and a page to introduce independent practice.
