A common noun names a person, place, animal or thing that is not specific. It is not the actual NAMES of people, places, animals or things.
Common noun does not begin with a capital letter unless it is the first word in a sentence. For example: Mom is going to the shop. Here, mom is a common noun but it begins with a capital letter because it is the first word of the sentence.
Common nouns are named as such because they help in differentiating with proper nouns which we will discuss later. For free proper nouns worksheets, go here.

Today, I will be sharing a grammar resource with you. Let me discuss the worksheets with you so that you can do it with your child.
The first worksheet is about sorting the noun pictures under person, place, animal and thing. Those under person are coloured blue. Pink colour is for images which fall under place like supermarket, igloo etc. Things like bag, grapes and dress will be coloured red and the last category which is animals will be coloured in green.
The next worksheet is a picture sort, cut and paste worksheet. Cut the picture tiles and paste them under person, place, animal and thing.
The next worksheet is divided into two parts. First, circle the seven nouns. Then, using those nouns, complete the sentences.
In the next word puzzle worksheet read the words and pick another word from the word bank which relates the best to the 3 given words.
Example : apple banana melon
We know these names belong to the fruit family so look for a fruit in the word bank.
Read the story and then complete the sentences using nouns with the help of pictures. Then, circle the nouns in the story other than the ones you filled in.
