A common noun names a person, place, animal or thing that is not specific. It is not the actual NAMES of people, places, animals or things.
The common noun does not begin with a capital letter unless it is the first word in a sentence. For example, Mom is going to the shop. Here, mom is a common noun but it begins with a capital letter because it is the first word of the sentence.
Common nouns are named as such because they help in differentiating with proper nouns which we will discuss later. For free proper noun worksheets, go here.

Today, I will be sharing a grammar resource with you. Let me discuss the noun worksheets with you so that you can do it with your child.
The first worksheet is about sorting the noun pictures under person, place, animal and thing. Those under person are colored blue. The pink color is for images that fall under place like supermarkets, igloo etc. Things like bag, grapes and dress will be colored red and the last category which is animals will be colored in green.
The next worksheet is a ‘common nouns list’ picture sort, cut, and paste worksheet. Cut the picture tiles and paste them under person, place, animal, and thing.
The next worksheet is divided into two parts. First, circle the seven nouns. Then, using those nouns, complete the sentences.
In the next ‘common nouns list’ worksheet read the words and pick another word from the word bank which relates the best to the 3 given words.
Example, apple banana melon
We know these names belong to the fruit family so look for fruit in the word bank.
Read the story and then complete the sentences using nouns with the help of pictures. Then, circle the nouns in the story other than the ones you filled in.
I hope you find this resource useful.
