We are beginning the 3rd quarter focusing on grammar. We will introduce other topics as the quarter progresses.
Grammar is the study of the way words are used to make sentences. Our class will focus on the eight parts of speech.
Noun: A noun is a person, place , thing, or idea. We will be learning and dissecting ten different types of nouns.
The 10 noun types we will be interacting with include the following list:
1. Common nouns
2. Proper nouns
3. Material nouns
4. Compound nouns
6. Abstract nouns
10. Countable nouns

Proper Nouns give your definition of this type of noun and provide an image or images. Write a sentence for this type of noun. Highlight the noun you used in each sentence.
