Common Noun And Proper Noun Worksheets For Class 3

What is Common nouns

Common nouns are general names that refer to a class or category of people, places, things, or ideas. They are not capitalized unless they are the first word in a sentence or part of a proper noun. Here are some examples of common nouns:

  1. boy
  2. girl
  3. city
  4. town
  5. country
  6. dog
  7. cat
  8. animal
  9. bird
  10. fish

Common nouns can be singular or plural. For example, “boy” is a singular common noun, while “boys” is a plural common noun. “City” is a singular common noun, while “cities” is a plural common noun.

Common nouns can be modified by adjectives to provide more information about the noun. For example, “happy boy,” “large city,” “cute cat,” etc.

What is Proper noun

A proper noun is a specific name that refers to a particular person, place, thing, or idea. Proper nouns are always capitalized, regardless of where they appear in a sentence.

Here are some examples of proper nouns:

  1. John
  2. Mary
  3. New York
  4. London
  5. Toyota
  6. Ford
  7. Christmas
  8. Easter
  9. Monday
  10. Tuesday

Proper nouns can be singular or plural, but the rules for forming plurals for proper nouns can be different than for common nouns. For example, “John” is a singular proper noun, while “Johns” is a plural proper noun. “New York” is a singular proper noun, while “New Yorks” is a plural proper noun.

Proper nouns cannot be modified by adjectives, as they are already specific names.
