Upper Case Letters

15 min1 participant

Identification of proper nouns and the importance of their denotation with the capital letter brick.

Let's play!

  1. Read the words.

  2. Remove each proper noun and place it in a column on the left bottom side of the base plate.

  3. Place the common nouns in a second column.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • Letter bricks

  • Capital letter sign bricks

  • 1 bowl

Write 6 words on the base plate, mixing proper and common nouns. Don’t forget to add "capital letter sign" when needed !

Facilitation tips

  • Correct brick manipulation to recreate the nouns is difficult without a plan.

  • Ask "How did you remember where to place the letters?"

  • Suggest "Tell a story using the 6 words and choose a way to indicate when you say a word that starts with an upper case letter" (e.g. stand up, clap your hands).

Possible variations

  • Add more words.

  • Add words that can be both proper or common nouns such as Braille/braille.

  • Multiple classification : first sort proper or common ... and then sort within the category using capital letter sign (persons’ names, cities’ names …)

  • Peer play : one makes the words, the other sorts them.
