Here’s a game idea on Common and Proper Nouns


Language Arts  


3, 4, 5  

Title – Proper vs. Common Nouns
By – Jamie Rhodes
Subject – Language Arts
Grade Level – 3-5
Materials: paper, pencil
Assign students to evenly numbered groups (if possible). Each student needs their own pencil. Supply a piece of paper for each group. Call out a common noun. Example: state. Students are to think of as many proper nouns as they can that matches the common noun. To make a competition between teams ask for complete silence. Make sure students are seated in a circle. Lay the paper in front of one student. Each student will get a turn to write a proper noun to match the common noun. The students silently pass the paper around the circle with each child writing their own answer. Give them one minute. The group that named the most correct proper nouns receives a sticker, candy, coupon, or extra points. Play as many rounds as time permits.
