You will definitely want to laminate this activity for year after year use at your literacy center! This is such a fun way for your students to practice sorting nouns into 3 categories: person, place, or thing. The download comes with 3 large trees, 3 baskets (labeled person, place, or thing), and 54 apples (18 apples for each noun category - each apple has a word on it that is either a person, place, or thing). I also included a recording sheet.
* Put the 3 trees on a table
*Put the 3 baskets on the table
* Randomly place all the apples in the tree so that they can be "picked"
* Students will pick an apple, read the word, place the apple word in the correct
noun category basket
* Students will write the word in the appropriate column on their recording sheet
This activity is also available as a noun, verb, adjective sort!
