Abstract Nouns and Conjunctions

Abstract Nouns and Conjunctions

As your child studies the various parts of speech, emphasize the difference between concrete and abstract nouns. A concrete noun is one that we can see, touch, smell, hear, or taste — an abstract noun is one that we cannot. As your child learns to identify abstract nouns, they will be more mindful of the words they use in their own writing.

Similes and Idioms

Similes and Idioms

Similes and idioms are two examples of figurative language. In a simile, two unlike things are compared using the words "like" or "as." Idioms are phrases with non-literal meanings. Offer examples of each, then challenge your child to decipher their meaning. Once you "let the cat out of the bag," your child will find that it's "as easy as A-B-C" to identify and write their own.
