Fix It Up Sentences (November) (capital letters, punctuation, and spacing)
Capitalize the first word in a sentence and the pronoun I. This packet contains 10 pages. Each page has a simple story on it including five sentences. The ten stories are about pilgrims, Indians, corn, pies, turkey (2), scarecrow, pumpkins, Thanksgiving, and the Mayflower. The sentences are not written correctly. The first letter in each sentence has not been capitalized and the ending punctuation is missing. Some of the spacing also needs correcting. Have your students rewrite each sentence correctly. Begin each sentence with a capital letter, add the correct ending punctuation, and make sure there is correct spacing between all words. The sentences used contain frequently used sight words, decodable words that students should be able to read, and a few other common nouns that students see often. These activities are great for morning work, literacy centers, homework or for a quick mini lesson on including capital letters, ending punctuation, and spacing in sentences. Students can read the story to a partner or to the teacher after correcting the sentences. Students could also add other details to the story using the back of their paper.
About the Seller
I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
