The Official Poster of the 28th National Children’s Book Day: a Picture

(took this picture of the 28th NCBD poster. Art by Jonathan Ranola)

Posters are pieces of Literature and thus I was able to use this as a springboard for my lesson on capitalization. I started with identifying the parts of the poster.

  • art/design
  • title
  • slogan (to explain  this part, you can say famous slogans and let your children guess the company, product or event it is advertising or promoting. They loved this activity!)
  • date
  • sponsor

Afterwhich, I directed their attention to the title and asked them what they notice about the words (the first letters of the words are capitalized). I then proceeded teaching capitalization.
