This packet was created to help students practice identifying nouns and verbs. When teaching this skill, you must be careful because so many verbs can also be identified as nouns. For example the word “swing “ can be used to describe an object or an action. As a result, I hesitate to teach this skill in isolation with only the word but rather in complete sentences where students have a better understanding of the parts of speech involved by reading the sentence in context. Have fun with these activities and enjoy learning!
