  • Interactive Notebook Pages: Parts of Speech: Nouns

    $6.50

    The seven interactive notebook pages in this product address the skills listed in CCSS as well as those covered by ELA teachers who are not following Common Core. They are:

    • Lesson Activity 1: Noun Recognition/Common and Proper Nouns
    • Lesson Activity 2: Concrete and Abstract Nouns
    • Lesson Activity 3: Collective Nouns
    • Lesson Activity 4: Plurals
    • Lesson Activity 5: Unusual Plurals
    • Lesson Activity 6: Possessive Nouns
    • Lesson Activity 7: Possessive or Plural?
    • Optional Intro/Divider Pop-up Page

    These lessons and activities focus on the noun as a part of speech. They do not include a study of nouns as they are used in grammatical structure (subject, predicate nominative, direct object, subject/verb agreement, etc.).

       Though the CCSS introduces nouns in the primary grades, this set of interactive notebook pages is for 6th-8th graders and some high school ELA classes. It is designed to be a combined review, reinforcement, and a new-learning tool. The skills covered are advanced and not for beginners.
