Alright kiddos, are you ready to talk about writing? I am!
Before we start today's story,
I thought it would be a good idea to remind you of
important rules when it comes to capital letters.
1) All sentences start with a capital letter
2) Proper Nouns need to be capitalized
The names of people, places, & things are proper nouns.
1) "The boy smiled."
Boy doesn't need a capital,
but if the sentence said, "Parker smiled.",
it needs a capital because Parker is a name,
and it's the first word int the sentence.
2) "I drove by the school today."
School doesn't need a capital because it's not a specific place, it's just a building.
If the sentence read, "I drove by the Mexico High School today."
Now the school has a name, so it needs a capital.
3) "I went to the park to read yesterday."
Park is not capitalized because it's just a location, not a specific place.
If the sentence read, "I went to the Mexico Point Park to read a book."
You need to use a capital because you used the name of the park.
