Capitalization - Names and Dates
1 The Hook
2 Direct Instruction
Using the interactive board, show a paragraph, and read it with the students.
Read it again, this time ask students to jump up ( lik popcorn) when they come to a capital letter.
After "jumping", ask students to tell their shoulder partner why the letter was capitalized. ( proper noun, date, etc.)
3 Guided Practice
4 Independent Practice
Students write a Thank You letter.
For example, students write a Thank You letter to the Principal for the Ice Cream party they attended last week.
When finished, students ask their shoulder partner to edit the letter. Print the letter ( or send it to the teacher).
5 Wrap- Up
Students share their letters in their teams.
Team managers select a letter to share with the class, projecting the letter on the Apple TV/ interactive board.
Teacher reviews letters and then sends the to the Principal.
