Help your students review punctuation and capitalization for titles in this engaging trashketball game! All that you will need is the ability to project a power point presentation, a ball (soft texture), some dark tape, and a trash can.
Beginning with a brief review of rules for punctuating and capitalizing titles, the game includes three rounds. In the first two rounds, students must write the correctly punctuated titles in the context of sentences. In the third round, the difficult increases and students must both punctuate and capitalize the titles correctly.
Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this game motivates them with their love of sports. When you put your students in heterogeneous groups for a game with friendly competition, it is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.
This activity makes excellent guided practice after instruction for punctuating and capitalizing titles. Then follow the game with independent practice. Instructions for both students and the teacher are included, along with a key.
