This packet was created to be used as a teaching tool for my first grade students. The packet can be fastened together and used for the entire grammar unit on nouns. The types of nouns included are: common nouns, proper nouns, plural nouns, possessive nouns, and compound nouns. There are also pages about capitalizing the days of the week and the months of the year, as well as, pages about using a comma in dates and in a series of nouns.
The journal itself for the students is 14 pages. There is a title page, a page about nouns in general, one page for each type of noun introduced, three pages on capitalizing days and months, two pages on using commas, and two assessment pages. The introduction page for each type of noun has a word or two in the definition to be filled out by the student with teacher instruction. There are some examples that the students complete themselves. There are starred statements on these pages as a self-assessment for the student.
An answer key is included, as well as, a copy of the entire student journal in black and white. The graphics included are from mycutegraphics.com and are used with permission.
This packet can be used as a great resource for the student to refer to when asked to identify or write various types of nouns. I have created similar packets for other areas of grammar instruction - such as sentences, verbs, adjectives, etc., which will be uploaded soon. I have my students collect each smaller journal together in a writing portfolio, which is great for ongoing assessment and to show writing progress throughout the year! Thanks for checking back to see the other journals! My store name is Fun First Grade.
