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.
