Common nouns are words that represent a person, place, or thing and we see them a great deal in an average day (either in spoken or written form). As one of the foundational building blocks of grammar, common nouns provide elementary school students with a solid starting point for composing sentences. Fourteen interactive worksheets start with basic lessons such as knowing the difference between common and proper nouns. Your students then move on to identify nouns in sentences and eventually, they will compose sentences using common nouns on their own. You do not have to monitor every student at the same time, as helpful answer keys keep your kids on track.
Think outside the textbook and motivate your students to learn by using Common Noun worksheets to teach the basics of writing smooth flowing and highly communicative sentences.
