(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.
- 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!)
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.
