Capitalizationby Cheryl Miller Thurston, Zach Howard (Illustrator)
Capitalization is not likely to leap to the top of any teacher's list of "My Favorite Units to Teach." However, it is possible to teach students to capitalize correctly, without having them fall asleep over their text--if you are using a text designed with real kids in mind, and if the text leaves students some room to exercise their own creativity. "Capitalization" definitely does both. The activities in the book are short and filled with humorous characters and situations that appeal to young people. The activities always involve student writing, as well as practice sentences for students to correct. Give the activities a try. Your students will have some fun with writing as they learn to recognize and apply capitalization rules, one step at a time.
