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.”

“Soccer is a zero-sum sport. We cannot have two winners of the same game.”
Verb. To work between two groups and help them reach an agreement.
“We will need to mediate this discussion about trade because Country A hates Country B.”
Noun. Things, like bridges, power lines, or highways, that governments build and support.
