Nouns -- Parts of Speech for 1st Grade

This week students were introduced to the term "noun" and what it means as a part of speech. They were invited to draw a person, place or thing to put on our "Noun Town" chart. This beginning lesson  is the first step in helping children learn what a sentence actually contains. Knowing the parts of speech will also aid in punctuation, writing and speaking.
The Common Core Standard in Language CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.1  Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
Our next stop in "Noun Town" will be learning more about common, proper, and possessive nouns, in particular. But for now, we're just be driving by and enjoying the scenery!!
