  • Write the following words on the board: cat, green, man, funny, sat, dog, slept, green, and bed.
  • Ask, “Which of these words are nouns?” Call on a student to come up and circle all the nouns.
  • Tell students that these type of nouns are called “common nouns” because they name people, places, things, or ideas but aren’t the actual names of people, places, or things (those are called proper nouns). For example, “Ryan” is a proper noun while “boy” is a common noun.
  • Now repeat the circling process with verbs and adjectives, having students circle each type of word in different colors.
