Nothing but Nouns Game

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Grades: 1 - 3

A game to practice working with common, proper, and collective nouns.

Use this Scattegories-style game with your students when learning about the different types of nouns.

Students will go through each letter of the alphabet and try to name a common noun, a proper noun, and a collective noun. The student that finishes first and has the most original nouns wins.

Use this as a whole-class activity by setting a timer on the board and having your students work independently or in pairs. This activity also can be used as a writing center activity. Simply print out a few copies on cardstock and slip each one inside of a dry-erase sleeve. Students can compete against each other in centers and then wipe the board clean when they are done! Why not challenge students by adding that the items they list must be found in the classroom!

The types of nouns included in this resource are:

  • common nouns
  • proper nouns
  • collective nouns.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.
