Earlier this week I introduced the concept of nouns to my students. To begin the lesson, I read aloud the book Chicken In The City by Liza Charlesworth. It is a great book to use when you are teaching nouns to your students. I read the book once just to introduce it to my students. I then introduced the concept of nouns by discussing with them that nouns are all around us. They are people, places and things that are in our world around us. After our discussion, I read the book again, and we stopped after every page or so and created an anchor chart using the nouns seen in the story. My students LOVED this activity, and our final creation is now hanging in our room for them to refer to for the rest of the year!
