Product Description
This 46-slide PowerPoint was designed to introduce your students to the rules of capitalization. Students will be taught when and where to capitalize words in sentences.

This PowerPoint introduces students to the capitalization rules in a logical and systematic way. The PowerPoint begins with discussing the four "BIG" rules of capitalization:
1. Start every sentence with a capital letter.
2. The pronoun I is always capitalized.
3. Use capital letters for important words in titles.
4. Use capital letters for proper nouns.

From there, students are given an opportunity to differentiate common and proper nouns, and specific proper nouns are discussed, including:
-languages
-nationalities
-religions
-races
-political affiliations
-historical events and time periods

Next, some of the trickier aspects of capitalization are addressed, such as:
-capitalize directions when referring to regions (ex. Northeast), but not when giving directions to general locations
-capitalize job titles when they appear directly in front of a name (ex. General Miller), but not when the job title is separated from the name
-capitalize relationships when they precede or replace a proper noun (ex. I hope Grandma makes cookies for me), but not when it is used as a common noun (Her grandma makes good cookies.)

Students are reminded that seasons and subjects should NOT be capitalized.

The PowerPoint concludes with 20 practice sentences that students must edit. Many of the practice sentences include multiple capitalization errors, but a few do not contain any errors except for the first word of the sentence needing to be capitalized. This was done to try to help prevent students from overgeneralizing the rules.

A 4-page PowerPoint companion handout is also included. Students write on the handout, recording their answers, as you advance through the PowerPoint.
