Capitalization Practice Worksheet: Scaffolding and Extension Tips 

In addition to individual student work time, use this capitalization rules worksheet as a:

  • Scoot activity (cut out each question and tape around the room)
  • Post-lesson exit ticket 
  • Homework assignment
  • Whole-class review (via smartboard)

Got fast finishers? Students who need a challenge can add another word to the sentence that needs to be capitalized.
