PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thumbs up for capitalization! Instruction begins with a lively, interactive Power Point presentation. After direct instruction, a series of sentences appear on the screen. Students put their thumbs up or down to signal whether a sentence is capitalized correctly. Corresponding lesson plans offer two practice sheets (with answer keys) and three alternative activities that ask students to apply their knowledge.

This set was developed for intermediate students, but it is also appropriate for reteaching, review, and remediation at the middle school level. It’s great for social studies, science, and/or health class too!

What’s Included:
• PowerPoint presentation
• Lesson plans with extensions
• Text of PowerPoint presentation
• Two worksheets with answers

Overview:
1. Direct Instruction – Review rules for capitalizing. Then display and discuss rules for what not to capitalize. Instruction focuses on seasons, directions, elements, plants, animals, and diseases.
2. Guided Practice – Continue the presentation with practice exercises. Students put their thumbs up or down to show whether the phrase is capitalized correctly. This is great for whole-class engagement and formative assessment.
3. Independent Practice – Worksheet A allows students to practice their new skills independently.
4. Assessment – Worksheet B may be used as assessment or additional practice.
5. Extensions – Extension activities allow students to practice capitalization rules for seasons, directions, elements, plants, animals, and diseases in real-life situations.
