Every day for 12 days I will share a printable or activity that solidifies or teaches a concept. All you have to do in addition is to fill in the subject gaps. When I share a math printable, you then add something grammar/spelling/writing related.

The Different Sections of the Free Common and Proper Nouns Worksheets

Section 1: Warm Up (What is a Noun?)

In this section of the grammar worksheets, we review what a noun is. A definition is given as well as examples.

The first activity has a list of words and all the nouns need to be identified by underlining or circling. If your child has a dot marker they can use that as well.

The second activity in this warm up involves identifying nouns in a sentence. Again they can underline, circle or even color the noun.

Section 2: Identifying Common Nouns

This section has 2 activities that allows your child to practice identifying a common noun. It also gives a quick definition at the top of the page as well as a tip.

Section 3: Identifying Proper Nouns

Similar to Section 2, there is a definition of a proper noun as well as exercises to help your child identify them.

Section 4: Extra Practice

If you feel that your child has mastered the exercises in the free common and proper noun worksheets, then the extra practice portion is perfect!

Using Luke 2 of your preferred Bible version, you can ask your student to either write a sentence or paragraph from that chapter. They will then identify the common and proper nouns in the section they have written.

Tips for Using the Nouns Worksheets

  1. Place the common and proper nouns chart in a protective sleeve in order to keep it from wrecking.
  2. You can use a dry erase marker with protective sheets in order to reuse the pages.
