An Adventure with Nouns in Third Grade

I had so much fun teaching about nouns last year and look forward to teaching about nouns again this year!!! I used the theme traveling the world when I taught all about the different kinds of nouns. The students even got to take a pretend airline ride around the world as they learned. They loved having their own suitcase and passport for all the lessons.

Students travel and learn about concrete nouns, abstract nouns, common nouns, proper nouns, singular nouns, plural nouns, and possessive nouns.  It’s amazing to watch them just get it with these lessons.

My friend Nancy and I teamed up to make grammar resources last year for our team of nine third grade teachers. All our students had a blast learning about nouns and they rocked state tests with the help of these resources.

I just placed our noun set online. It is a huge resource!!! You can learn more about it by clicking here!
