Partner Writing: Capitalization Rules Part One

Today I am starting a series of writing lessons designed for students to complete with a partner.  The focus of this lesson is capitalizing the first letter of names, days of the week, and month words.  Next week I will introduce what words in titles need to be capitalized.

Students fill out the questionnaire and trade with their assigned partner.  (To find out how I assign partners, click here.) 

They make sure that first and last names, days of the week, and month words are spelled and capitalized correctly.  Then, on another sheet of paper, they write three sentences with correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation.

Happy Friday!
