What Does "Capitalize the First Word" Mean?

  • Big Letter at the Start: When we write a sentence, the very first letter of the first word should be a big letter, also called an uppercase letter. For example, in "Cat is playing," the 'C' in 'Cat' is big.
  • Special Letter: Think of the first letter in a sentence as a special letter because it starts telling us something new.

Why Do We Capitalize the First Word?

  1. Starting a Story: Just like when we start a race with a signal, we start a sentence with a big letter to tell us it's the beginning.
  2. Easy to Read: It helps us know where one sentence ends and another starts, making reading easier and clearer.

How Can You Remember This Rule?

  • Visual Aids: Use pictures or flashcards that show sentences starting with a capital letter.
  • Practice Writing: Practice writing sentences on paper or a board, always starting with a big letter.
  • Games and Songs: Learn through fun games or songs about capital letters.

Examples to Show Kids:

  • Show a sentence like, "i have a dog." Then, correct it with them to "I have a dog."
  • Use colorful markers or stickers to highlight the first letter in practice sentences.

Encouraging Practice:

  • Praise Efforts: Always say 'well done' when they remember to use a capital letter at the beginning.
  • Make It Fun: Turn it into a game, like spotting capital letters in a book or magazine.


For Grade 1 students, learning to capitalize the first word in a sentence is an important step in becoming good writers. It's a simple rule: always start a sentence with a big, uppercase letter. Through fun activities, practice, and encouragement, young children can easily grasp and remember this fundamental aspect of writing.
