No, that is not correct. Remember a noun is a person, place, thing, or idea. Please try again! Go back to Slide 5 Great job! Caleb and Nintendo are the nouns in this sentence. Caleb is a person and Nintendo DS is a thing. Move on

Common Noun- A noun that does not name a specific person, place or thing. dog Proper Noun- A noun that names a specific person, place or thing.

Move on In the following sentence, what is the common noun? Shaun cut the grass. a. Shaun b. cut c. grass No, Shaun is a proper noun because it names a specific person. The word cut

is verb because it tells what Shaun is doing. Try again- What is the common noun? Go back to slide 10 Yes! You are really getting the hang of this. Grass is the common noun in this sentence because it is a thing but is not specific.

Move on West Middle School is a great place to learn! Shopping at the Grand Traverse Mall can be hectic during the holidays.

c. walked Oops! He is not the proper noun because he can be referring to anyone, not someone specific. Walked is the verb of the sentence. It tells what he is doing. Go back and try finding the proper noun. Look at the other examples if needed. Go back to slide 14

Excellent! Mackinaw Bridge is the proper noun! It names a specific place. Move on A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun.

b. loudly c. I d. shower Good try but, sing cannot be the pronoun because it is the action. Loudly describes how I was singing. Shower is noun, a thing. See if you can find the pronoun. Go back and try

again. Go back to slide 18 Awesome! I is the pronoun because it takes the place of a noun. I replaces someone more specific like girl, boy, Bob, or Mrs. Ryan. Move on

You did a fabulous job. What is the interjection in this sentence?

a. job b. fabulous c. Wow! Oops! The word job is a noun (a thing). It really does not show emotion. Fabulous is great word but in this sentence it is used as an adjective. It describes the job you did.

Go back and try again. Go back to slide 42 Superb! (That is an interjection) The correct answer is c. The word Wow! shows excitement and emotion. Move on

Great job everyone! The parts of speech are very difficult. Lets do a review to be sure you know what each part of speech is. Move on I am a person, place, thing or idea. What am I? a. adjective
