Last week we learned about nouns. My students learned that a noun is a person, place, thing or animal. They got it pretty easily.
Now it is time to move on to proper and common nouns. Distinguishing between them is usually a little more difficult for my first graders. The hardest part usually is remembering to capitalize them in sentences. That takes a lot of practice.
I made a little word sort activity to help my students practice distinguishing between common versus proper nouns while reviewing that nouns are people, places, animals, and things. You can grab it as a freebie. Just click here or on the pictures. I hope it is helpful to you. If you would like to read another post about nouns and get the free posters I made to go with this sorting activity, click here.
