A proper noun is a specific name for a person, place, animal or thing.
I have a detailed lesson for nouns accompanied with worksheets. Do check it.
Have you even wondered why our names, names of schools or hospitals or holidays or months of the year or days of the week begin with a capital letter?
For example: simi or Simi?
Shiv Nadar School or shiv nadar school?
Medanta Hospital or medanta hospital?
march or March?
saturday or Saturday?
holi or Holi?
All of the above refer to someone or something specific or particular so, they will begin with a capital letter.
The above anchor chart explains the difference between proper and common nouns. I will be sharing five worksheets in this pack.
Before attempting this pack with your children, do try ‘Proper Nouns Pack1.’
