Writing Lesson of the Month Network

...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!

Nouns are safety nets for our littlest writers, and they help students develop sentences; you can't have a sentence without a noun, but they need to learn to move beyond the basics of noun use.   Our language is full of precise nouns that are often forgotten by younger writers.  Also, young writers often overuse pronouns.

  

There's such potential for improved writing when dealing with word choice and nouns.  But how do you help young students to develop word choice skills center around this popular part of speech?.

 

Our Noun Game for Kids Word Prompt is really popular at WritingFix, especially with the little guys.  We're trying to improve the prompt by adding short ideas for noun lessons that teachers can use before students work on a draft inspired by the word game we've featured.

 

If you have a clever way you inspire young writers to better use adjectives, please share it with us in the "Reply to This" box below.  If we end up posting over at the WritingFix site, we will send you a complimentary copy of one of the NNWP Print Guides as our way of saying THANKS for sharing back with our WritingFix Project.

 

If you don't see the "Reply to this" box below, it's an easy fix.  Simply scroll to the top of this screen and look for the "+Join Primary Writers" link near the uppoer right-hand corner of this page.  Once you click on that, the "Reply to this" box will appear.

 

Thank you for considering sharing back with our site!
