-The noun family is meant to be presented after children have learned the noun, article, and adjective. It is mean to show the logical order of these words in the English language. I tell my students a story about 2 sisters and a mom going for a walk and they need to cross a busy street. The mom is the noun because she is the biggest and most important (!). She always walks with her next biggest (oldest) daughter the adjective on the left. The adjective always holds the hand of her little sister (the article), always on the left. They ALWAYS walk in this order to be safe. (Have fun with the story-this is the general idea).
-Print and laminate the complete poster of The Noun Family. Use this when telling your story…or, you could print, laminate and cut out, then introduce the pieces as you tell the story.
-Included here are various options for your students to make the noun family. Use the different templates for different levels of your students.
