These 30, valentine-themed sentence cards, are a quick, easy and fun way to review capitalization and end punctuation.
They are perfect for the month of February, or plug into your Valentine's Day activities.
I have made "Fix the Sentence" time, part of my daily morning routine, which my students absolutely love.
Grammar can often be tedious & a bit boring for students, but by writing 1-2 sentences on the board each morning, then calling on a student to find & fix one mistake, then explain what they did & why, turns things into a fun, game-like activity that takes just a few minutes. That student, then chooses a classmate to find & fix another mistake.
You can also use the sentence cards in a pocket chart. Read the cards together as a whole group to practice a lot of sight words.
Choose 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 a sheet of paper.
I've provided a set of mini "fix the sentence" cards for this, which makes a nice word work or writing block activity.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy pocket chart punctuation as much as my kiddos do.
