ALNS What is a Noun

$5.00$8.50 no tax applicable

ALNS What is a Noun defines what a noun is and outlines what can be included under the labels, “person”, “place” and “thing”.  It provides examples and the space to brainstorm more.  Includes noun-spotting activities and a bibliography.  8 pages.



The ability to identify nouns can be important in reading, speaking and writing.  Knowing what a noun is also helps literacy & numeracy teachers reveal ways of creating texts – verbal or written.  What is a Noun is designed to help teachers primarily, although it may be suitable for learners, too. It doesn’t seek to teach you about nouns per se, but to outline the layers that can emerge when presenting this subject.  The document may constitute a single lesson (amongst more advanced learners).  Students new to English will require more time and extra activities.  ALNS’ What is a Noun is available in .pdf and/or MS Word formats.

Due to the nature of the online environment, it is not possible to provide a pre-purchase view of this resource.  You are charged a nominal fee to cover a very small part of its production.  How we stagger teaching and learning is subjective; I am not inferring that mine is the only approach.  My aim in providing this resource is to help you prepare efficiently and revise what you need to.  It is not a lesson plan so you will need to assess its appropriateness in your program.

ALNS’ templates aim to help teachers primarily although many are suitable for learners, too.  None of them, however, substitute the need for you to research and deliver to the needs of your students.

All the best with your teaching!
