Well, common & proper noun practice was a major success! Today during centers, my 5th graders were given 24 noun cards. 12 of them were common nouns, and 12 of them were proper nouns. Before centers, I provided some modeling and instruction using some posters and the Smartboard. The students did so well! When they were finished sorting, I let them create their own common and proper nouns. They really enjoyed that also. I liked reading what kind of nouns they came up with. It helped to spark some conversation as well. All in all, great day in Miss Kirk’s 5th grade class!
