This resource includes picture sorts, centers, no prep pages, and display posters to help you introduce the concept of nouns to your students. The activities are designed to help students be able to recognize and classify a noun as a person, place, thing, or animal.
The pages included are easy to prep and most importantly, little learner friendly. These activities provide a fun, hands-on approach to teaching nouns. Activities are included for whole group, small group, and independent learning stations.
Here’s What’s Included:
Noun Posters: A set of 6 noun posters that give an overview of a noun as well as separate posters for a person, place, thing, and animal. Works great for classroom display, an introductory lesson on nouns, and whole group discussion.
No Prep Pages: A collection of 20 no prep pages to help students practice nouns. Separate pages for person, place, thing, and animal are included as well as general noun practice. Includes a Noun Flap Book Activity. This is an interactive cut and paste sorting activity. No prep is required but an “I Can” visual directions page is included so this can be used as a center.
Match and Cover Nouns: Students will look at each picture to decide what type of noun it is. They will use the color code on the right of the mat to cover the pictures.
Noun Sort: Includes headers, 72 picture cards, and recording pages. Students will sort the picture cards using the noun headers. To show their work, they will write the picture names under the correct heading.
