These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Capital and Lowercase topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Uppercase and Lowercase Labels

Review when people use uppercase and lowercase letters. Together with your child, find objects in your house that have words with uppercase and lowercase letters. Then use sticky notes and have your child label objects around the house. For example, your child can label a mirror, book, and table using lowercase letters. Encourage them to notice that brand names are proper nouns and therefore capitalized. Your child can also label a sticky note with his or her name, using a capital letter, and wear the label.


Create a calendar with your child. Have him or her write out the days of the week and the months, using capital letters, and highlight important holidays such as Labor Day, President’s Day, Veteran’s Day, etc. Explain that holidays are proper nouns and should be capitalized.


Have your child practice writing the alphabet and create an alphabet book for lowercase and uppercase letters. Your child can illustrate an example of each letter. For example, your child can write “a is for apple” and draw a picture of an apple and then write “A is for Annie” and draw a picture of Annie. Go through all the uppercase and lowercase letters together and brainstorm different ideas and pictures to put into their book.
