I created this packet to help my students understand and use common and proper nouns through hands-on activities. Whooooo Knows Nouns? would be a terrific addition to your noun unit! It is aligned with the Common Core for ELA Conventions of Standard English for First Grade CC.L.1.1b. Use common, proper, and possessive nouns. This packet solely deals with common and proper nouns to help students zero in on those two noun types. I’ve created a separate packet, Give a Hoot for Possessive Nouns, that covers the third part of this Common Core Standard.
This packet includes:
4 Anchor Charts: simply photocopy, laminate, and post!
2 charts related to Common Nouns: definition and how to write them
2 charts related to Proper Nouns: definition and how to write them
3 Hands-On Activities:
Common and Proper Noun Sort: Students sort word cards by placing them in the correct column of a chart, then recording their work. This includes: student directions; word cards for you to copy, laminate, and cut apart; a sorting chart; color and black/white recording sheets; and an answer key.
Common and Proper Noun Switcheroo!: Students think about what common nouns could become and write them as proper nouns. This includes: student directions; two pages of color and black/white recording sheets that can be printed double-sided to save paper.
What is a Noun? Foldable: Students create their foldable, then write what they know about common and proper nouns. This includes: a blank cover for students if you don’t want them to use lines to write their responses or you want them to use your own writing paper and a lined sheet for them to cut and glue inside their cover before writing their responses.
Bonus Foldable Idea!: First, students use two colors of paper and fold each into eighths. Second, they write Common Nouns on the cover of one and Proper Nouns on the cover of the other. Third, they unfold each one and either draw nouns or glue in noun pictures you provide. Finally, they label each section with the name of each noun.
