Each letter makes a sound.  Some letters make more than one sound.  Words are made up of letters put together.  Words put together with a finger space between them, make a sentence.

A Noun names a person, place, or thing.  Singular nouns have no s at the end.  Plural nouns have an s at the end.

A complete sentence tells a whole idea.  An example is:  My puppy naps.  An incomplete sentence is missing information.  An example is:  My puppy.

A Naming Part of a sentence tells who or what.  Example:  Two frogs

A Telling Part of a sentence tells what happened.  Example:  jump.

Proper Nouns are special nouns that begin with a capital letter.  Examples are:  Mary, Publix, Beach Boulevard, Blessed Trinity Catholic School.
