Topic: Grammar - Nouns and Verbs

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify and define nouns and verbs
  • Recognize the role of nouns and verbs in sentence construction
  • Apply knowledge of nouns and verbs to create meaningful sentences


This activity will involve a combination of whole-class instruction, small group work, and individual practice. It will incorporate visual aids, hands-on activities, and technology to enhance student engagement and understanding.

Resources/Materials Required:

  • Whiteboard or chart paper
  • Markers or chalk
  • Index cards or sticky notes
  • Printed worksheets or handouts
  • Computers or tablets with internet access


Step 1: Introduction (Know)

Begin the lesson by asking students if they know what nouns and verbs are. Write their responses on the whiteboard or chart paper. Explain that nouns are words that name people, places, things, or ideas, while verbs are words that show action or state of being.

Step 2: Whole-Class Instruction (Understand)

Use visual aids such as posters or slides to provide examples of nouns and verbs. Discuss the characteristics and functions of each. Encourage students to ask questions and participate in the discussion.

Step 3: Small Group Activity (Can Do)

Divide the class into small groups and distribute index cards or sticky notes. Instruct each group to write down five nouns and five verbs. Encourage them to be creative and think of different types of nouns and verbs. Once they have completed their lists, have each group share their words with the class.

Step 4: Individual Practice (Can Do)

Provide each student with a printed worksheet or handout containing sentences with missing nouns or verbs. Instruct them to fill in the blanks with appropriate nouns or verbs. Circulate around the classroom to provide assistance and feedback as needed.

Step 5: Technology Integration (Can Do)

Allow students to use computers or tablets to access online grammar games or interactive activities related to nouns and verbs. Provide a list of recommended websites or apps for them to explore. Monitor their progress and provide guidance as necessary.


Assess students' understanding of nouns and verbs through the following methods:

  • Observation during whole-class instruction and small group activity
  • Reviewing completed index cards or sticky notes
  • Reviewing completed worksheets or handouts
  • Reviewing students' performance in online grammar games or activities

Provide feedback to students and address any misconceptions or areas of improvement.
