This 32 slide presentation is a wonderful teaching tool to use as a week long unit for teaching children about common and proper nouns or as a single day unit preview or review. It can also be used on individual computers for reteaching or acceleration with individual students. It integrates animations, clip art, games, and interactive activities.
It begins with a review of nouns. Then continues with an activating strategy game to get kids thinking. Next is the lesson part where students learn about common and proper nouns and how to identify and use them correctly. Then it is time to have fun with The Category Game where kids get into groups to show off their knowledge about common and proper nouns. Finally, it is time for test prep which includes affirmation for correct answers and guidance and reteaching for incorrect answers. The presentation wraps up with a visit to an online game for some fun with Harcourt Language.
This presentation was created by Elizabeth Hill for her first graders, who thoroughly enjoyed it and as a result exceeded on their common and proper noun assessment.
