A noun can be broken up into different types of nouns. For now we will only concentrate on the meaning of a basic noun.

6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

Focus on the definition of the noun, by breaking it up into the following:
1. Person
2. Place
3. Thing
4. Idea

B. Development-

1. I will explain each part of the noun definition. I will use several examples to get the point across.
2. I will show videos related nouns, and designate group activities based on the videos.

C. Practice-

1. They will do group activities. They will be given a few sentences for each group, and they will each have to identify a noun on their own with the help of their classmates.
2. They will work on noun worksheets.

D. Independent Practice-

1. I will assign 10 sentences with several nouns, and the student needs to circle the nouns.
2. The following day I will give a quiz. The quiz will have 4 sentences, and each sentence will several nouns, which need to correctly identified. .

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

If students are having problems understanding, I will find time before or after class to help those students.


F. Checking for understanding-

I will grade the quizzes. Students who didn't do well, will have the chance to identify the nouns on 4 additional sentences to increase their grade.

Right after I pass back the quizzes I will have the students ask me questions on the quiz. If they don't have any questions I will still go over the quiz.


G. Closure-

1. Students will know what a noun is.
2. Students will be able to identify a noun.

This will allow them them to get ready to get into singular, plural, common, proper, abstract, and collective nouns.
7. Evaluation-
1. The test scores should better allow me to see what the students are or aren't understanding.
2. Once students get more in depth into other types of nouns, I will be able to see who might be getting behind. Those students will get further assistance from me.
8. Teacher Reflection-
I hope that students will know what a noun is. The slow pace is so students wont get more confused on the first lesson based on nouns. If I see that the lesson was too easy for them, I will increase the work in the following noun lessons. If it's too confusing, I will concentrate on nouns on another day, but with different techniques..
