Learning the different parts of speech is an important part of all grammar lessons. Through our Montessori experience I have found that the more hands on approach is a much more favorable of an approach for young kids! Below is a FREE printable worksheet activity to teach your child a Common and Proper noun. I am pulling this idea from our Montessori at home lesson plan and it really gives children a more hands on approach.

Common And Proper Noun Lesson
Once your child has got down the basic of nouns you can move on to what makes them a Common and Proper noun. The best way to do this is to first show your child a fun video OR just simply explain to them the difference in a simple way for early learners:
- Common Noun: A common noun is the general name for a person, place, thing, idea or animal. Example: dog, cat, teacher
- Proper Noun: A Proper Noun is still a person, place, thing, idea or animal but it is that common noun’s specific name. A proper noun is always capitalized. Example: Rover (the dog’s name), Mittens (the cat’s name) or Ms. Apple (the teacher’s name) // I always use girl or boy then my child’s specific name as an easy example for them to understand.

You can use this just by cutting out the rectangles as pictured or you can laminate them for longer use if you’d like. You can also grab paper and make your own! The words on the cards attached are designed to be easy to read words for kindergarteners or first graders but you can add more complex words as you please. You can also use a little white board with children as they get older to write down and place it under the correct column. OR hand them a stack of index cards to make their own! SO many fun ways to play!
I hope this brings some fun to your home learning! Enjoy!
