  • Do these words remind you of a holiday that many people celebrate?

Get ready to brainstorm more words called nouns that you may enjoy throughout the year!

A noun is a word used to name a person, place, or thing, like teacher, Texas, or toad.

Sometimes, nouns are called naming words.

Print two copies of the Nouns Name People, Places, and Things worksheet from Downloadable Resources in the right-hand sidebar — one for you and one for your parent, teacher, or friend.

Set a timer for five minutes, and see who can brainstorm and list the most nouns in that time!

In the first column, list the names of people you know.

  • Examples include mom and doctor.

In the second column, list the names of places.

  • Examples include park, school, and Walmart.

In the third column, list the names of things.

  • Examples include ball and pencil.

When you complete the table, read the nouns you both have listed.

Then, continue to the Got It? section to think about holiday nouns!
