These 28, Thanksgiving-themed sentence cards, are a quick, easy and fun way to practice capitalization and end punctuation, while reinforcing some factual information about the first Thanksgiving.
Choose your cards, then read them together as a whole group to practice lots of Dolch sight words.
Pick a student to come up and using a dry erase marker, circle letters that should be capitalized and then add end punctuation. (period, question mark & exclamation point).
You can do this on a whiteboard, with a pocket chart, or pass a card out to each child to correct.
For more practice, as an individual activity, have students choose X number of mini cards and rewrite the sentences correctly on one of the 7 worksheet options.
Afterwards, students can swap their paper with a partner to correct.
I've included 2 sizes of mini "fix the sentence" cards for this, which makes a nice Daily 5 word work activity too.
There are 28 mini cards on one sheet of paper. Simply print, laminate and trim several copies, for a class set
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy "pocket chart punctuation" as much as mine do.
This simple activity truly takes the tediousness out of grammar and sight word practice, while reinforcing non-fiction information about Thanksgiving.
