Common Nouns

Common Nouns

A common noun is a noun that does not name a particular person, place, or thing. It is a general noun and does not need to be capitalized. Have fun with your child by picking out common nouns in signs you see around town, in books, and in their writing.
Teaching your students the difference between common and proper nouns is important as they grow into more skilled writers. Understanding that common nouns are not specific people, places, or things will help them better understand the different types of nouns.
