My daughter came home from school singing a silly song with one line saying ‘person, place or thing is a noun’. I asked her what she was singing because I was surprised she was learning about nouns already. She clarified that she wasn’t totally sure what it meant, but that she had learned that song earlier that day at school. This was my cue to create fun, interactive nouns activities to teach her!

Printable Nouns Activities
Nouns are key to completing a sentence and learning the parts of a sentence is a great thing for kindergartners or first graders to learn. These four printable activities will help kids with the classification of nouns.
These activities make fabulous center or morning work activities. Kids will only need a few coloring and writing utensils. They are quick yet effective activities! We did not laminate, but you could easily do so to preserve the activity and use dry erase markers instead of crayons or colored pencils.
After these activities, kids will have a better understanding of what a noun is and how to point it out in a sentence.
On the first page, kids are asked to color the pictures based on whether it is classified as a person, place or thing. We used colored pencils, but red, blue and yellow coloring tool will work perfectly!
If you are short on time, you could have the kids just circle the objects in the specific color.

The second page has a list of sentences. Some words may be difficult for kids to read, but most words are simple sight words. Kids can read the sentence, or you can read it to them, and they will circle the noun. This is also a quick, simple activity.
The third page is a list of all of the letters in the alphabet. The point is for the kids to think of a noun that starts with each letter.
This could be done as a group, which would be fun, or individually. Kids may need help spelling the words, but this is also a great time to have the kids try and sound out and write the words as they think they are spelled.
The last page has three boxes, one for each a person, place and thing.
Kids can draw one of each that are in their life or something that comes to mind. This is a fun and invitation to be creative for the kids.
