Common Noun Worksheets

What is a common noun? A common noun is a word that refers to a general object rather than a specific one. It is not capitalized unless it's the first word in a sentence. Ex. The dog belongs to the women at the fire station. In this sentence, "dog," "women" and "fire station" are all general terms that refer to a class of items rather than to named individuals. Common nouns are different from Proper Nouns which give a name to a noun. Feel free to use the printable noun worksheets below in class or at home!
