Teacher Name:

Grade:

Subject:
 Language Arts

Topic:
 Nouns
Content:
 A word (other than a pronoun) used to identify any of a class of people, places, or things ( common noun), or to name a particular one of these ( proper noun).
Goals:
 Students will be able to identify nouns in a sentence
Objectives:
 Students will be able to define different types of nouns - including proper nouns, pronouns, singular and plural nouns.
Materials:
 Pencil/Paper, Computer, Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation, Interactive Whiteboard, Overhead Projector, Textbook
Introduction:
 Tell students they are going to learn about “words that name things” called nouns. Write the words “nouns” and “naming words” on the board. Tell them they are going to learn what a noun is and be able to identify a noun when they see one.
Development:
 Proper nouns begin with a capital letter and name a person, place, or thing. Pronouns are words that can take the place of nouns. Singular nouns are nouns that name one person, one place or one thing. Plural nouns are nouns that name more than one person, place, or thing.
Practice:
 Have the students look around their classroom, and write down everything they see. Have each student read one or more of their items out loud - most of these will be nouns. Next, have the students organize these nouns into categories of "people, places, or things." (Ex. desk, chair, teacher, Sam, pencil, book, chalkboard, floor...)
Checking For Understanding:
 Assessment procedures - The next day, have students complete a written assessment, with a list of ten words, six of which are nouns (boy, tomato, Tallahassee, Mr. Smith, football, downtown) and four of which are not nouns (sing, the, pretty, quickly). Students will write “yes” or “no” on the line beside each word to indicate whether the word is or is not a noun. To judge performance - Students must get eight out of ten correct to demonstrate mastery.
Closure:
 Ask, “What kind of words have we been learning about today? How can you tell if a word is a noun?”
