Capitalization is when we place a letter in CAPITAL form. The use of capital letters varies greatly by language. Some languages don’t even have a set of capitals. The use of caps dates back to the days of Greek and Latin scribes. They are the ones to thank for most of today’s modern rules and acceptable practices. Veteran writers shy away from the use of capital letters, but there are some general rules of capitalization that we will explore below the worksheets. We have many different caps worksheets available for different topics below.
When do you go CAPS? When don't you go caps? This skill is normally
reserved for lower elementary level students, but a new standard is
currently being proposed to add a review of the skill for the 5th grade.
