I am looking for a new and fun way to introduce nouns to my first graders. Does anyone have a lesson they can share?

I'm Showing My Age...

I do not have a specific lesson, but you might try the schoolhouserock link. Even without ordering the CD's, you can play a short wav. file of the songs from the 70's. I guess I'm showing my age because I can sing all of them! I used this site when my 1st graders studied the Constitution. They were having trouble memorizing the Preamble, so I played the .wav file from this site. They can all 'sing' the Preamble now! Good luck.

Thanks for the site. I forgot all about schoolhouse rock. I learned about the planets, and my multiplication table when I was young from schoolhouserock. I remember when they use to show it on the weekends when I was little.

Noun Town

I also used the School House Rock song to teach my kids about nouns. Afterwards, I had my students create a picture of a person, place and thing. We glued their pictures on to a large sheet of butcher paper and labeled it Noun Town. I refer to it when we go over our vocabulary. If it can be included in Noun Town, it's a noun.

Christmas Nouns

The reading specialist in my school came in and did a lesson. She read Clifford's Christmas and then made a list of nouns, 3 columns, person, place and thing. The students were hesitant at first, but then got really into it.

As a follow up, we're making a snowman and they are writing a person on the hat (their name), a place on the middle ball, and a thing on the bottom. It looks like it'll be really cute.

Thanks for all the great ideas. I used the Clifford and snowman idea and the kids loved it. We then sang the schoolhouse rock song that I had put on chart paper.

Noun Activity

I put my first graders into three groups and gave each group a piece of butcher paper with person, place and thing written on each paper. One group wrote five nouns that named people, one group wrote nouns that named places and the other wrote nouns that named things. We did this after talking about nouns. I then posted the paper around the classroom to remind them of what nouns were.
