Grammar Series: Nouns

Grammar Series: Nouns

I’m excited to announce a new grammar series, starting with an overview of NOUNS! Check out the video here:

FREE DOWNLOAD – PRACTICE

Here are the excerpts used for practice near the end of this video if you’d like to download it and mark it up: Practice: Identifying Nouns

MORE TO COME

There are ten more videos — so far! — coming in this series: pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, objects, phrases, clauses, and sentence types. These videos will form a foundation for other lessons that will help students with their writing: how to fix/avoid run-ons, comma splices, and dangling participles; how to check for subject/verb and pronoun/antecedent agreement; how to ensure parallelism in writing; and so on.

But in the meantime, if you need more help with nouns, here are some great resources that I discovered while planning this series:
