, 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
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
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.
