Teaching Nouns

First, teachers introduce nouns with inductive activities. Students explore the difference between noun words and other types of words in order to develop a definition, then further explore noun words to begin thinking about the four types of nouns covered by the unit. After watching a 7 minute video (included), students will complete an Anchor Chart note sheet on the types of nouns.

  • Noun Presentation
  • Group Activity Recording Printable
  • Student Anchor Chart
  • Printable Anchor Chart pieces for a Class Anchor Chart
  • Lesson Video

Practicing Nouns

Next, students practice nouns. They are asked to both identify nouns and come up with their own nouns for each category. Two different printable activities and a card game are included for practice.

  • Types of Nouns Reference Sheets
  • Tips for Identifying Nouns Reference Sheet
  • Identifying Nouns Worksheet in a Short Passage
  • Two Versions of a Noun Story (Worksheets)
  • Noun Go Fish card game so students can review nouns throughout the year or in a center.


Finally, teachers can assess students' understanding of the types of nouns. Two formative assessments are included: a noun sort and a multiple choice worksheet. Two versions of the summative test are also included, so that students can be reassessed if needed.
