Fran’s Freebies: Name Me a Noun game


Practice all the different types of nouns with this unique free Name Me a Noun game that can be played two ways. Everyone gets a lotto-style playing board and a pile of space markers. Players take turns either drawing a card and trying to match it to a space on their board, or (the alternate way of playing) coming up with their own word to fit a space on their board. The winner is the first to cover all 8 spaces on their playing board.


Types of nouns practiced:
— person, place, or thing
— common or proper
— concrete or abstract
— singular or plural

Examples of playing board spaces:

— “thing, concrete, plural” (like pencils or bulldozers)
— “person, common, singular” (like teacher or sister)
— “place, proper, singular” (like Chicago or Penny Park)
This set includes 4 playing boards (make multiple copies for more than 4 players), 48 word cards, and over 100 space markers.

You can even add your own word cards – or have students make enough cards to fill their own boards, as an independent activity!
