Yesterday we talked about the importance of capital letters.
Some of your parents may have already told you another rule,
high five your parent. They are so smart. Here's the deal, I didn't forget,
I saved it for today. I don't want to make you super smart on the first day.
If your parents haven't told you yet, are you ready to learn another one?
The letter /i/, when written all by itself, IS ALWAYS a capital!
Isn't this a cool rule? I think so.
Why do you think "I" is capitalized when you write it?
Let me ask you a question, if I read a sentence,
"I took the i-pads out of the cabinet."
Now you read the sentence...
Who is the I in this question?
You got it, when you read this sentence, YOU, are the I.
When I read the sentence, I am the I.
Hence, I, represents a specific person.
This specific person has a name.
So if this represents your name, it must be a capitalized.
You are an important person and if you were to speak your name,
you'd capitalize it, so the /i/ needs to be captalized.
For today's writing challenge:
If you want to share your writing, remember you need your parent's permission. I'll write back.
This page is a way for me to connect with students, share my passion to write, and hopefully instill this same passion in them as they learn at home.
REMEMBER TO INCLUDE IN YOUR STORY:
When you write, remember to answer these questions:
I gave you a few examples to get you started.
1) Who you are with?
(mom, dad, brother, sister.)
2) Where you are?
(inside, outside, house, barn)
3) How are you feeling?
(happy, sad, mad, discouraged)
4)What are you doing?
(playing, singing, dancing)
5) When did this take place?
(day, morning, afternoon, night)
