Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

This lesson is all about nouns. So, nouns are sometimes called naming words because they name people, places, things, and ideas. There are different types of nouns. Proper nouns are the names of specific people, places, or things and have a capital letter. For example, England or Jayden or the World Health Organization. Common nouns are the names of types of people, places, things, or ideas so a man, a frog, or a banana. Abstract nouns are the names of things or ideas that we can't touch such as love or dream. You can tell if a word is a noun if it can be used after a determiner such as ‘a’ or ‘the’ or ‘that’. For example, that frog, a banana, a dream, that Jayden. Nouns can be countable such as ants or non-countable such as snow.
