Our first grammar lesson this year was Nouns. The students remembered that nouns were a Person, Place, Thing or Idea… but when it came to Proper Nouns vs. Common Nouns and Abstract Nouns vs. Concrete Nouns they had trouble differentiating. I made two different Noun Sorts to help reinforce this standard. You can grab them here. This is a great activity for Partner Work, Center Time or Homework.
This is what they look like….

Thanks for sharing! My class is just starting to review and learn nouns! These will help, I'm thinking of using it as a game where the students draw a noun and have to put it in the correct column!

Oh, I love sorts. Maybe it is just how my mind works! Have a great day!
Thanks for posting this great noun sort. I've downloaded to use later in the year. 🙂
