This idea is not my own. It came from the Abeka material that Sydney's teacher taught at the Abeka Academy.
There are a total of 9 scoops of rules that she learned so far. Each flavor of ice cream represents a particular capitalization rule.
They went over one, sometimes two rules a day, and then practiced that rule by finding words in sentences that needed to be capitalized. They also reviewed the rules everyday before adding a new one.
They even played review games. One game in particular was a lot of fun. It was boys vs. girls and each team tried to be the first one to guess the right answer to questions about the rules that the teacher quizzed them on. The one who answered first earned a "scoop" of ice cream. In the end, the ice cream cone with the most scoops won the game. What a fun way to review the rules!
Below is a photo of the scoops I made for Sydney to help her learn the rules.
2. I - Capitalize the word "I" no matter where it is in a sentence.
