In this lesson, students will have learned to capitalize names of people and places, and to capitalize dates after having read the information in the PowerPoint. They will have worked in pairs to discuss the proper use of capitalization in sentences. Students will have also played the interactive game, Magical Capitals, to correctly identify the words that need to be capitalized.
Students will also learn to place commas when listing a series of three or more things, to separate dates in a sentence, and to place a comma before conjunction words such as “but”, “and”, “or”, etc. when joining two statements to make one sentence.
Finally, students will learn to place a period at the end of a sentence that makes a statement, a question mark at the end of a sentence that asks a question, and an exclamation mark at the end of a sentence that expresses urgency or excitement.
