MINTS is an acronym that helps students learn and remember when to use capital letters. I created a PPT to use in my own class to teach students MINTS in a more interactive way than the basic chart boards. A handout for this PPT is also available in my store. Here is how I went about using this PPT:
1) Introduced to the students what a capital letter is and asked what they remembered about capital letters
2) Brought up the PPT
3) Went through each letter (stopping and explaining)
4) At each slide I asked the students to explain WHEN to use it and to give an example
5) At the end I handed out the handouts to the students so they could have something to reference
NOTE: I teach middle school special education right now and it has been helpful to their memorization of when to use it.
