Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – Nonfiction Resource; Reinforce the story of Dr. King’s life and work with human rights as your K-2 students practice reading, writing, capitalization and punctuation.
You’ll copy and give each student a book about Dr. King (three levels provided for differentiation). Each page has one, two or three sentences with missing capitals (beginning of a sentence, proper nouns, “I”) and punctuation (period, question mark, exclamation point; In level 2, apostrophes for contractions and possessives). Your students’ job is to figure out where the sentences end, edit the sentences, and then rewrite them with correct capitalization and punctuation, as well as neat handwriting.
A major stumbling block for correct capitalization and punctuation is knowing where the sentences end. Young writers need lots and lots of practice with these skills. I created these editing and writing practice sheets for that purpose, and used them 2-4 times a week in my classroom throughout the school year. I was impressed with the students’ improvements as the weeks progressed!
I’ve included three levels so you can differentiate in your kindergarten, first, second, or third grade classroom:
♥ Easier Edit and Rewrite
♥ Harder Edit and Rewrite
♥ Research/Student Generated Writing
Great to use:
♥ For literacy centers
♥ As independent work
♥ As part of guided reading
♥ As an intervention
♥ As an assessment
♥ For homework
♥ With substitutes
●●● Product page count includes 48 answer key pages.
