Sort common and proper nouns with this set of Christmas-themed Noun Task Cards!
Common and Proper Nouns… With a Christmas Twist!
Christmas is coming up, and what better way to celebrate is by integrating a bit of cheer into every subject? We’ve created a fun set of Christmas-themed common and proper noun task cards to help your upper years students review common and proper nouns.
Students read through the task card and determine whether the underlined noun is common or proper. They will then record their answers on the recording sheet.
An answer sheet is included with your download for students to self-check their answers.
Scaffolding + Extension Tips
Support struggling students by providing them with reference materials such as a Parts of Speech anchor chart.

More Ways to Put Their Writing Skills to the Test!
A dedicated, experienced educator team created this resource for students to work on independently in your Christmas Writing stations. However, check out our suggestions for using this activity to reinforce your small group and full-class lessons, too:
🏫 Whole Class Instruction
Project the task cards on a whiteboard and work through each together, discussing different ways of approaching and completing the questions.
🧮 Small Group
Teach concepts in a small group setting. Students can use mini whiteboards to “show and share” their work for each problem.
✏️ Individual Practice
For an independent task, students can use their writing notebooks to record their answers.
