Ready to help your kids work on the rules of capitalization with these free capitalization worksheets? Today’s freebie includes not only the worksheets to help your kids but also a chart that has a few of the common rules of capitalization.
Today is Day 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas Activities and Christmas Worksheets! Throughout this series I will be sharing ideas and resources to help you teach your kids through the Christmas season. I know that homeschooling with Christmas drawing near can seem almost impossible and I am here to make this stress free.
Every day for 12 days I will share a printable or activity that solidifies or teaches a concept. All you have to do in addition is to fill in the subject gaps. When I share a math printable, you then add something grammar/spelling/writing related.

The Different Sections of the Free CAPITALIZATION Worksheets
Section 1: Free When Do I Use Capital Letters Chart
This chart is not meant to be comprehensive as there are more rules for when to use a capital letter. However it does give the basics such as capitalizing the word I and all sentences must begin with a capital letter.
Section 2: Identifying What Words Need to Be Capitalized
This section has 2 activities that allows your child to practice identifying all the words in the box that needs to be capitalized. This allows them to practice some of the basic rules of capitalization.
Section 3: Identifying the Words that Need to Be Capitalized in a Sentence
Your child will be asked to identify what words need to be capitalized in the simple sentences below by underlining.
Section 4: Capitalization Errors in the Paragraph
If you feel that your child has mastered the exercises in the capitalization worksheets, then the paragraph exercise is perfect! Simply choose one or both paragraphs for your child to work on. The first paragraph uses the NIV version while the second uses the King James version.
Section 5: Extra Practice
Using Luke 2 of your preferred Bible version, you can ask your student to either write a sentence or paragraph from that chapter. They will then identify the words that have been capitalized and state why they were capitalized.
Tips for Using the CAPITALIZATION Worksheets
