Election Day!

During writing time today we discussed how today is Election Day. We put what we are studying in writing and information about Election Day together in a predictable chart. We started talking this week about what words get a capital letter, the beginning of a sentence has a capital letter and every sentence should have a period at the end. We haven't talked about question marks or exclamation points yet, so right now all of our sentences are usually ending in a period. We completed the chart about Election Day using what we have learned with capitalizing the beginning of the sentence, special holidays and names of people. We also had a few words within the sentence that were missing and we discussed why they should not be capitalized. We finished each sentence by adding a nice, round period! After completing our chart, we read through our Time for Kids magazine all about voting on Election Day!
