Lesson Plan - Get It!
Write down on a piece of paper the date of your birthday. You'll see why as you read on!
Welcome to the final lesson in the Capitalize It! lesson series.
Throughout this lesson series, you have learned the rules for capitalizing words in your writing. Tell your teacher or parent the three times you capitalize letters.
Think about what you learned in previous lessons. You may have told your parent or teacher that you capitalize letters when you write a proper noun, the word "I," and the word at the beginning of a sentence.
In this lesson, you will use capital letters when you write the days of the week and the months of the year. To review the skills from this lesson series, turn and tell your teacher a name and place that begin with a capital letter.
You will return to the Where do I use capital letters? video from the Quiet Creative that you watched in the last lesson. The video should begin at 2:20 and end at 2:34. If you would like to review all of the rules for capitalizing words, you can watch the entire video.
While you watch the video, look for when to use a capital letter in a date:
The days of the week and months of the year all begin with a capital letter. Holidays also begin with a capital letter. Turn and tell your teacher the days of the week and the months of the year.
Great! You are ready for some practice.
