• Work with partners to think of abstract nouns for the practice sheets. Then answer the discussion questions about abstract nouns together.
• Have students complete a bookmark for abstract nouns and then glue them into their reader’s or writer’s notebooks.
• Have students create a abstract nouns folder and add the bookmarks and practice sheets. Cover pages are included!
