Friday 8th October – Literacy

Spalding Rule 26

I am learning the Spalding rules.

I know I can do it when I can match the rule to a word.

Every Friday to start Term 4, we will be focusing on a new Spalding rule.

Today we will be learning about rule 26.

Independent Task

Rule 26 is: Names or titles of people, places, books, days, or months are capitalised.

These sorts of names are called proper nouns.

We want you to think about your school holidays again. Can you write some words that fit into Rule 26?

For example:

  • Names of people you saw. For example, Rahni
  • Names of places you went to. For example, Woolworths and Westerfolds Park
  • The days of the holidays. For example, Sunday and Monday
  • Books and movies I watched.

Make a list of 10 to 15 words that fit into rule 26.

Do not forget to mark your words the same as the photo below:
