Capitalization is essential for writing good sentences, indicating importance, and showing respect in distinguishing names and titles from the rest of the words we use in our work.
This capitalization unit covers for capitalization according to standard English usage. It also covers unnecessary capitalization.
Start with the Capitalization Pre-Test to see what your students know, and then use each lesson for your warm up, or isolated grammar time during class.
I like to go over the rules with the whole class, do a couple problems together, and then let them work indiviually or as a pair to complete one lesson (or one side) per day.
✓Capitalization Pre-Test (two sides)
✓Lesson One- Rules #1-3 (two sides)
✓Lesson Two- Rules #4-5 (two sides)
✓Lesson Three- Rules #6-8 (two sides)
✓Lesson Four- Rules #9-11 (two sides
✓Review of Rules #1-11 (one side)
✓Lesson Five- Rules #12-14 (one side)
✓Lesson Six- Rules #15-16 (one side)
✓The Big Review (two sides)
✓Final Assessment (two sides)
All worksheets come with answer keys!
I have also included a simple PowerPoint presentation that includes all the rules from each lesson on individual slides. You can use these to present in class and have students write the rules before using the worksheets, and you are welcome to post in on your Google Classroom or website for reference.
Please see the preview to see if these will work with your classes.
