Valentine Nouns is a great center activity where your students can demonstrate their knowledge of common nouns and proper nouns. In this product, you will find noun cards, two center posters with definitions, and 16 nouns to use at a center in your classroom. The students will sort the nouns into common nouns and proper nouns, and then they will write their sorted nouns under the correct column on their recording sheet. There are two versions included; one version is in color, and the other version is in black and white for ink saving. You choose what works best for you.
If you want to provide additional practice with common nouns and proper nouns, there is another handout for the students to complete. I have included answer keys to both the center activity and the handout for students.
