Our handy free Proper Nouns Worksheet for junior school or elementary school aged children is in printer friendly Adobe PDF format and provides an introduction to proper nouns in the English language. The explanatory text is supported by some proper noun exercises; the worksheet is intended as a follow-up to our Common Nouns Worksheet for kids.

Teachers and parents should note that this is a simple and basic introduction to proper nouns and how they may refer to the proper names of people, places or things. Words and sentence structure are kept as simple as possible to help children focus on the subject matter rather than being distracted by the meaning of the sentences. Older children may consequently feel that the content and proper noun exercises do not challenge them enough to make the exercise meaningful.
