Here are two activities your students can use to practice Common and Proper Nouns - with a football theme.
The first activity can be used two different ways. Students can either sort the word cards into Proper Noun/Common Noun piles or use the word cards to play a matching game. Students should match the common noun with its proper noun (ex. cookie - Oreo).
For the second activity, students read a sentence and decide which word is the proper noun. They write that word with correct capitalization on the recording sheet.
These activities align to CCSS L.2.2.a.
