Noun Town


Where do people, places, things, and animals live? In Noun Town, of course! The kids thought of everything they wanted to put in Noun Town, and then we created an oversized anchor chart to read during stations. Some of my favorites: a submarine, an army guy, a banjo, and Wal-Mart. I mean, you can't have a town without all of those essentials, right?!

I'm loooving this idea. With a kindergartener, it's great to see what kind of learnings she will look forward to. I mean, "Noun Town?" How adorable is that?!

My kids thoroughly enjoyed making our noun town. Have any hints for teaching verbs and adjectives?
