This mini lesson is intended to be used by teachers after you have shown students the difference between common and proper nouns. I recommend it for grades 4-6. Students will do the following:
1. Play a 3 minute game that is fast and fun and requires only a pencil and a copy of my worksheet!
2. Make a list of common and proper nouns based on a theme.
3. Correct a poorly written letter in which a student has not used common and proper nouns correctly (can be used as homework!).
4. Complete an exit ticket to tell you what they learned and to rate the difficulty of the lesson.
