For the next few weeks we will begin with a review of basic grammar skills. This week, we begin with nouns and then review the concept of common and proper nouns!
Nouns name people, places, and things. Every noun can further be classified as common or proper. A proper noun has two distinctive features: 1) it will name a specific [usually a one-of-a-kind] item, and 2) it will begin with a capital letter no matter where it occurs in a sentence.
