Capitalization Worksheet - Beginning of Sentences, Names, and Pronoun I

PDF, Google Slides | 2 pages|Grades: K, 1 - 2

Identify and write correct capitalization in sentences with our capitalization practice worksheet.

Explore the writing convention of capitalization! With this worksheet, your student will review the 3 rules for when to use capital letters, and get some capitalization practice by editing sentences with missing capital letters. 

How to Use this Capitalization Practice Worksheet with Your Students

The worksheet is most useful for independent practice after your lesson

On the worksheet, students will first circle two words in every sentence that needs capitalization. Then, they will write a sentence that shows they understand each of the 3 capitalization rules they learned in the presentation.

Or, why not complete the worksheet as guided practice with the entire class? Simply project the first page on your dry erase board or smartboard and answer each question as a class. You can even have your students answer the question on their mini-whiteboards first, then call on someone to come to the board to answer.

Got fast finishers or students who need more practice? Here is an idea to help you change the difficulty level of this worksheet. 

Play Teacher

Challenge students who already know the concepts by giving them a new job—teacher! To play, ask students to write 5 sentences with incorrect capitalization. Then, they will switch papers with a peer and correct each other’s mistakes. They can also grade each other’s papers and add stickers or stamps, just like you would do!

Scaffolding for Struggling Students

Before printing, underline 3 or 4 words in each sentence to narrow down the choice of words missing capitalization. Additionally, you might go through the second section as guided writing practice or as a partner activity.

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Because this download includes the answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheets for students to fill out on their own. 

You can also make this worksheet more sustainable by adding it to your classroom writing center! Print a few copies on cardstock and slip them into dry-erase sleeves. Students can record their answers with a dry-erase marker, then erase and reuse.
