Nouns or Naming words Pack

Grammar! It is a dreaded word for everyone and always associated with errors and correctness.

Grammar forms the foundation of communication. Are knowing the words in the English language enough? No! Grammar helps us string the words into meaningful sentences and make complete sense out of it.

Let’s take a quick example.

Let’s eat mommy! vs Let’s eat, mommy!

The difference is just in punctuation (a comma) but it changes the entire meaning of the sentence. Grammar is important for clear communication.

Grammar helps you speak fluently.

In my grammar program under English Safari, I will be covering parts of speech, articles, prepositions, conjunctions, punctuation etc. so that a solid foundation for written and spoken English is laid.

Today, we will begin with nouns which are also known as naming words.

A noun is a word that names a person, place, animal or thing.

Nouns form the building blocks of English grammar. In the English language, there are more nouns than any other type of word. Nouns are basic to a sentence structure since they serve as the subject of the sentence. A sentence is incomplete without a subject.

Person: businessman, maid, father, driver, teacher etc.

Place: hospital, bedroom, town, India etc.

Animal: tiger, dog, alligator, elephant etc.

Thing: table, mango, television, book etc..

The next worksheet in the NOUN PACK is about being creative and draw one of each- person, place, animal and thing. Example: mom, house, bug, sun etc.

Now, we move on to the next and look for the animals in the tiles. You might also find lessons and worksheets in books and otherwise where animals are covered under ‘things’ but I will be taking them separately as a group.

Please note that birds also fall under the category of animals. The bird group falls under one of the six basic animal groups.

These worksheets can be complemented with a simple ‘Noun Sort’ game that I have prepared. The kids are going to love it.

In the last worksheet of this pack, our little learners will separate ‘thing’ and ‘not a thing’.

Thing- bulb, blocks, raft, milk, golf and mask.

Not a thing- bug, dig, slim, fast, skip and dim.

These worksheets will provide your child with a basic knowledge of nouns. In the next few weeks, I will be sharing lessons and resources for common nouns, proper nouns, singular and plural nouns, basic collective nouns, gender nouns etc.
