Teaching Capitalization in Third Grade

If you’re teaching capitalization or reviewing it, your 3rd grade capitalization lesson plan should include a variety of resources and techniques. While worksheets help kids with capitalization practice, you might also want to use capitalization games and capitalization tests.


Fun Ways to Use Capitalization Worksheets

Students are usually asked to complete a worksheet on their own. However, there are other creative ways you can use capitalization worksheets with this age group.

  • Have a relay race where students have to work as a team to complete the worksheet.
  • Pass one worksheet around the classroom and give each student ten seconds to find a capitalization error.
  • Cut a few copies of the same worksheet into three or four pieces. Give out worksheet pieces at random, and ask kids to find the pieces that fit with theirs then complete the worksheet as a group.
