Is it a person, place, or thing? It's a noun! Use these worksheets to study nouns.

Nouns are words that are a part of speech that we use to people, places, and things. This word form is essential for communication to identify the subject of any sentence. They can be used to define inert objects, farseeing concepts, and a wild number of different pursuits. To pluralize them we normally just add an -s to the end of the word. If the word already ends in -s we often add an -es to form a plural. The common form of these words are used to define nonspecific things. The proper form is used to define specific things. The abstract form is used to define things that we cannot use our senses on. You can also use the collective form to describe groups.

Activities include writing the correct plurals of given nouns, turning nouns into possessives, identifying all forms within a given list of words, differentiating between abstract and concrete (people/places/things), the use of correct capitalization, creating original sentences using specific types of words as prompted, using picture prompts to write original sentences, and more. The writing kids work on with the topic the better! Fun Project Idea: Have your students perform the Schoolhouse Rock "Nouns" song (available on YouTube) for extra reinforcement? They are a solid classroom aid.
