Lesson Plan: Proper Nouns (2nd Grade)

Introduction: - Begin the lesson by asking students if they know what a noun is. Allow a few students to share their answers. - Explain that a noun is a word that names a person, place, thing, or animal. - Introduce the concept of proper nouns, explaining that proper nouns are specific names of people, places, or things. - Show examples of proper nouns on the board, such as names of cities, countries, people, and days of the week.

Lesson Outline: 1. Definition and Examples of Proper Nouns: - Show a short video to introduce the concept of proper nouns. (Example: “Proper Nouns” by TurtleDiary) - Discuss the video and ask students to share examples of proper nouns they noticed. - Write down the examples on the board and discuss why they are proper nouns.

  1. Identifying Proper Nouns:
    • Provide a list of sentences on the board or on a worksheet, and ask students to identify the proper nouns in each sentence.
    • Use questioning techniques to engage students, such as:
      • “What are the nouns in this sentence?”
      • “Which words are the names of specific people, places, or things?”
    • Allow students to share their answers and discuss them as a class.
  2. Capitalization of Proper Nouns:
