Teaching the '5 Jobs of a Noun' to your Elementary, Middle, and High School language arts students allows them to more easily recognize the other parts of speech in sentences. This is the FIRST THING I taught at the beginning of each year, and it gave my students amazing confidence.
Students will learn a NOUN can be a:
Subject - Direct Object - Indirect Object - Object of the Preposition - Predicate Noun
1. Subject (who or what the sentence is about)
2. Direct Object (who or what receives the action)
-I saw Molly.
3. Indirect Object (to whom or for whom – comes before the direct object)
-I gave Molly the note.
4. Object of the Preposition (the noun following the preposition)
-I gave the note to Molly.
5. Predicate Noun (the noun that follows a linking verb)
-The captain is Molly.
The 5 Jobs of a Noun are often difficult for students to identify. Not to worry! In addition to a 20-page PowerPoint teaching/reinforcing these concepts, an additional Practice + Assess lesson on each job will give your students the opportunity to practice what they have learned and then be assessed on the same subject.
