This was kind of a random idea I thought I’d throw out there and see what happened. I made a parts of speech worksheet where kids need to identify nouns and adjectives in jokes. This proved to be more interesting than anticipates, as jokes don’t always follow standard conventions. But it sure provided a great opportunity to discuss how the same word can be different parts of speech depending on how it’s used. I recommend this for mid-level grades ans upper elementary.
One of the Common Core standards for first grade is “Use common, proper, and possessive nouns (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.1b).” Kids first have to first know what common and proper nouns are. Here’s my second worksheet to help kids understand the difference between the two kinds of nouns. In the worksheet, students match a common noun with its proper noun counterpart.

The lower grade standards for the Common Core all deal with singular and plural nouns in one form or another. I loved this border and I just had to use it on a worksheet! Students are given a singular noun and have to write the plural noun. Here’s my free singular/plural nouns worksheet that centers around food!

I’ve decided I need to do more to help my ESL students. So decided to start with something simpler like prepositions. I made a total of 3 worksheets that help kids work on prepositions, and here’s the first.
