Introducing our children to grammar can be a bit sticky. Words like “nouns” and “verbs’ really have no meaning to our kids. Many grammar books present basic concepts in a rather dry fashion.
As Smiley (7) and Bear (4-who often is attached to Smiley’s hip and learning right along with him) make progress with their reading and writing, I have found that we have touched upon nouns & verbs. At this time, we do not follow a specific grammar program. My boys work primarily through read alouds, narration, and copywork.

From among my (retired Kindergarten teacher) mom’s many treasures gifted to us, I dug up this fun children’s book called Nouns and Verbs Have a Field Day by Robin Pulver. The boys enjoyed this entertaining read and quickly caught on to what it means when we say noun or verb.
This book is full of cartoony sketches that grab kid’s attention. We find out happens when a class has a field trip and what their nouns & verbs do in the interim. This book is a companion to Punctuation Takes a Vacation, another fabulous book by Robin Pulver (and I shared about it here.)
As you may have guessed, I wanted to extend the learning fun with this book like I do with other hits in our homeschool. My boys have a variety of learning styles and I find it helps benefit all. Also, we love to add learning fun whenever we can into our homeschool day!
To build upon their learning about nouns & verbs, I created a printable pack which includes 3 pages.
- Nouns & Verbs Sort
- Nouns & Verbs Scavenger Hunt
- DIY Nouns & Verbs MadLibs (for all ages!)
