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.

Using Pictures for Comprehension

Using Pictures for Comprehension

Get your child talking about what they see in the pictures in a book and how it relates to the text! When your child is reading a text that includes topics such as science and history, ask about what is shown in the pictures and diagrams that accompany the text. These text features can be crucial to understanding concepts and new vocabulary words.
Third graders usually read chapter books, but they still need to be taught how to interpret pictures. They'll need to do this when reading both fiction and nonfiction. Pictures, diagrams, graphs, etc. in science and history books can be vital to understanding vocabulary and content in nonfiction texts.
