Homework Help: Nouns

Posted by Richard on Wednesday, October 25, 2006 at 7:26pm.

Our son's 3rd grade teacher gave out a homework assignment which had the students make a sentence for each of their spelling words and then circle the "noun" in the sentence. We received his homework back from the teacher with the words, "I, you, He", circled. The comments were that they were not nouns but pronouns. We were wondering if at this age group 8-9 if they would know that nouns and pronouns would be different. Should the teacher stated cirle the common nouns? Thanks for your assistance on this problem.


all pronouns are nouns, so either way, your child is correct.


Nope, pronouns are not nouns... pronouns take the place of specific nouns. Example: Storm is a dog. HE is a merle Sheltie. HE is the pronoun referring to the specific name Storm.


I agree with GuruBlue. Even a third grader can memorize the common pronouns -- I, me, us, you, he, him, she, her, it, they, them.
