This week I introduced parts of speech. We are beginning by talking about nouns. We identified nouns as people, places, things and animals. Many of the children pointed out we could just write animals because people are animals too! We stated by making a web of nouns we could think of in those categories. We then, played I Spy a Noun in the classroom. I gave them clues and they had to guess nouns of what it could be.
Today we created a rainbow of nouns. The children are working on filling the clouds with places and animals (and people 🙂 ). Each strand of the rainbows is filled with nouns of that color. The children really seem to be understanding what a noun is!
