FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Thanksgiving Fix the Sentences FREEBIE”

by Sherry Clements

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

FREE: Thanksgiving Fix it Up Sentences (Capital Letters & Ending Punctuation) —

This activity is connected to the CCGPS ELACCKL2a,b. Capitalize the first word in a sentence and the pronoun I and recognize and name ending punctuation. This is a one page Thanksgiving FREEBIE. It has a simple story including five sentences. The sentences are not written correctly. The first letter in each sentence is not capital, important names are not capitalized, and the ending punctuation is missing. Have your students rewrite each sentence correctly. Begin each sentence and important names with a capital letter and add the correct ending punctuation. The sentences used contain frequently used sight words and other decodable words that students should be able to read. These activities are great for morning work, literacy centers, or for a quick mini lesson on including capital letters and ending punctuation 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.
