Letter Sizes

The names of our letters came up in class the other day, so I thought I’d put up a little reminder.

  • THESE ARE CAPITAL LETTERS. these are small letters.
  • THESE ARE UPPERCASE LETTERS. these are lowercase letters.

Remember, we use capital letters to start the first word in a sentence and to start proper nouns.

  • “I like music,” not “i like music.”
  • “I am from Antarctica,” not “I am from antarctica.”

We also use them to start adjectives that are made from proper nouns.

  • “She is Canadian,” not “She is canadian.”
