Goal-directed Instructional Design Plan - Capitalization in Writing
Author - Nichole Plank
I will ask the children when they use capital letters. They will probably respond, “At the start of a sentence.” Then I will continue by asking if we use capital letters any other time. Then I will open up his ripped up ABC book. To continue, I will show the kids a page in the book. We will look at the pages and decide when the author used capital letters. We will create a list. The children will look at the list and check to see if there were any connections between the words on the list. Then I will explain that names of people, places, and things need to be capitalized. Then we will practice this skill a couple more times. I will do this by sorting cards with words that should be capitalized and words that should not be capitalized. Once the children seem to be getting the hang of it, we will continue on towards the assessment. Give each child a letter of the alphabet. Help them brainstorm things the could write about. Have them illustrate it. Check for understanding by having them read their page to me on camera. I can compile these together for a digital story.
