Alphabet Chart ABC Chart Uppercase and Lowercase Alphabet

An ALPHABET CHART can be an important part of teaching your child how to recognize the individual letters and sounds of the alphabet – which is part of the process of learning to read. Use this printable Rainbow Alphabet Chart as a handy reference tool. Chart can be printed in 4 sizes: 8 inches x 10 inches , 8.5 inches x 11 inches, 11 inches x 17 inches, and 16 inches x 20 inches. The 8 x 10 size requires trimming. All other sizes do not require trimming.

*I am a retired K - 3 elementary school teacher so I do have experience teaching reading skills.*

Some Examples:

1. When beginning to teach with an alphabet chart it is important to go through the chart step-by-step with your child. First point to each letter as you sing the "ABC" song. Do this each day until the activity appears easy for your child. You can also reverse roles and you sing while your child points to the appropriate letters.

2. Write your child's name on an index card. Have your child find and say the letters in their name. They can even place a small sticky note under each of the letters from their name. Write other family members names on index cards and hunt and say the letters when you find them. You can use a real magnifying glass (or make your own) for this activity. Kids love to "look for clues"!

3. Focus on a letter of the day (name of letter and sound it makes). Read a book together and find words that start with the letter of the day. Look in old magazines or catalogs for words that begin with the letter of the day and either circle them or cut them out and glue them to a sheet of construction paper with the Letter Name on top.

4. Squirt shaving cream on a cookie sheet and have your child "say and write" the letters of the alphabet. You can guide their finger to make the letters if they are not very skilled at writing. Most kids LOVE this activity!

5. Make or get play dough and alphabet cookie cutters. Call out the name of a letter and the sound and see if your child can find the correct alphabet cookie cutter and make the letter with the play dough.

There are many creative alphabet activities and a quick online search will yield a bunch more!

Uppercase and lowercase letters in documents

When compiling documents and checking projects prepared by executors, it is quite often necessary to “take out” errors from them, incl. fight for literacy. And this article will help you with this. You will figure out what letter to write the legal form in the name of the company, as well as the names of government agencies, structural divisions, positions, elements of foreign names of people, names of documents, the word "application", the names of the subject of the Russian Federation, geographical concepts, airports, railway stations, streets , metro stations, events and holidays, when you write with a capital letter, and when with a small letter. The difficulty lies in the fact that sometimes the choice of lowercase or uppercase letter for a particular element can be different. And it depends on the specific circumstances. nine0003

The capital letter has 2 roles:

1. Serves to highlight certain sections of text. It is placed at the beginning of the text and after punctuation marks that end the sentence (after a period, ellipsis, question mark or exclamation point). This rule is usually not difficult. Although a lowercase (small) letter after the signs "!" or "?", but in business speech this almost never happens.

2. Allows to distinguish proper names from common nouns. And this rule is very popular in business speech. nine0003

For information

Previously, in Rus' everything was written in continuous text, even without spaces between words. Only the very beginning of the text was marked with a beautiful letter, decorating it to make it more noticeable. Such a letter was larger than others, it was called a capital letter or capital letter (meaning spelled out, painted).

When punctuation marks appeared, it was necessary to indicate the beginning of a sentence - here again a capital letter came in handy. True, you can’t save up for every offer of artistic delights. And the uppercase lost its beauty, retaining the name and size, which is larger than that of other letters in the line - lowercase. nine0003

Some languages ​​make extensive use of capitalization, for example marking almost all nouns in text. Admirers of the English language strive to impose the same rules in Russian. But you don’t need to mindlessly adopt other people’s rules in your monastery.

Proper names are divided into 2 groups:

  • The first is proper in the narrow sense (they belong to someone or something). These include:
    • names and nicknames of people,
    • nine0025 animal names,
    • geographical and astronomical names.
  • Second group - item . These are the names of authorities, other institutions and other organizations, associations, historical eras, public events, newspapers, magazines, books, awards, industrial products and much more.

The spelling of proper names is regulated by the rules of the Russian language. And although there are many difficult ones among them, still remember them in order to be guided by a literate person. The general rule is: in proper names (in the narrow sense), all words are capitalized. For example: Nikolai Vasilyevich Gogol (first name, patronymic and last name of a person), Santa Claus (name of a fairy-tale character), Kashtanka (animal nickname), Sirius (star name), Ursa Major (astronomical name), Kamchatka (geographical name), Krivoy Rog (city name).

In speech, proper names are usually accompanied by words denoting gender . For example: a dog (generic term) Bug (name) was playing in the yard. So generic terms do not belong to proper names, they are common nouns and are written with a lowercase letter. nine0003

Names of people, incl. foreign

First name, patronymic and last name are always capitalized.

Double surnames are written with a hyphen and both with a capital. For example, Sukhotina-Tolstaya, Rimsky-Korsakov.

Own function words included in names (prepositions, articles) are written in lower case. They are not in Russian names. And in foreign languages, words denoting social status, family relations, and the like are not uncommon. They can be considered generic terms. The following words are used in Eastern names: yeah, hell, al, al, ar, ash, bey, bek, ben, zade, ibn, kyzy, ogly, pasha, khan, ed, el. According to the general rule, they are all written with a lower case - Kerim-aga, Omar ash-Sharif, Bashar Hafez al-Assad.

But a capital letter is also possible. For example, if the particle ibn precedes the name: Ibn Sina. And also in a number of names, the spelling of which is determined by tradition. Usually prepositions, articles, etc. function words (van, yes, das, de, della, der, di, dos, du, la, le, background, etc.) are written with lowercase (Leonardo da Vinci, Hans von Bülow, Honore de Balzac). nine0003

But capitalization is also possible, as in the source language: Charles De Coster, Dos Passos, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Well, DiCaprio may not get a job in a Russian company. But the spelling of Korean, Vietnamese, etc., as well as Chinese names is better to know. These names consist of 2 or more parts, and each (even 1 letter) is capitalized. For example: Deng Xiaoping, Park Su Yong, Le Thanh Ngi.

In Japanese names we meet particle san , which is written with a hyphen and lowercase (Cio-Cio-san).

Capitalized and hyphenated, Ter- is written in Armenian surnames: Ter-Petrosyan, Ter-Akopov.

Geographical names and administrative-territorial names

If a company has a wide geography of sales or a large branch network, then different geographical names are mentioned in documents every now and then. Let's recall the rules for writing them.

In the names of continents, water bodies, mountains, countries, settlements, streets, etc., all words are written with a capital letter.

Functional words and the words “name, year, year” are written in lowercase, if they are included in the name: Zverev Street, Rostov-on-Don.

And, as a general rule, generic terms, being common nouns, are written with lowercase. For example: Northern Hemisphere, Krasnodar Territory, Hokkaido Prefecture, Tverskaya Street, Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge. nine0003

There is a nuance regarding foreign proper names. If the generic name is in Russian...
