YOU are important!

Welcome to the next of the Related Lessons in the Capitalize It! lesson series.

You have learned that names, places, and the beginning of a sentence all have capital letters. Now, you will use a capital letter when you write the word "I."

Turn and tell your teacher how you can show you are important in your writing.

Great work! You are ready for some practice.
