As a kid who had been taught British English & penmanship and consistantly got marked down throughout high school & college because of it, I learned to argue that since it came first, it was "proper". I suggest you teach your daughter's teacher a fact or two!

Wrong on so many levels.
Man, your daughter's writing is NEAT!

Oh, man. Really!? Boo! (And, that's a capital B.)

Good God. My son would fail kindergarten with that teacher. He not only has terrible handwriting, but he insists on capitalizing every word he writes. Which makes me wince every time he writes, since I'm a major language geek. But you know, he JUST TURNED SIX. And since he's already reading books without pictures, and can add double digit numbers in his head, I am not that concerned about his penmanship.

As the father of a first grader who gets some weird delight out of randomly capitalizing letters like an internet troll, I'm sure glad he doesn't have this teacher.

Oh my. That is just wrong. Believe it or not last night I was grading my husband's spelling tests for his FIFTH grade class - one child capitalized all the words and I asked him if it was OK and he said as long as the word is spelled correctly don't mark wrong. Said he would remind the student tomorrow not to capitalize in future tests. And this is fifth grade which means the kid should know better and still - he was cut a break. UNBELIEVABLE for you girl!

Wow. That's ridiculous.

Appeal, appeal! When I was 6 years old I got knocked out of a spelling bee because I spelled color as colour. Why are these teachers so anti-British?

That totally deserves a appeal!
