    Here's an idea my wonderful student teacher did yesterday! The kids loved it, and at the time I thought what a good lesson for an evaluation! She first introduced nouns (or really just reviewed them because this is 4th grade and the kids knew what a noun was). She then asked the students to brainstorm some nouns while she write them under Person, Place, or Thing on the board. Then, the students were in groups of 4 or 5 and their job was to make a list of Halloween nouns using the 3 categories. They came up with huge and creative lists! The students then used 3 different colors of markers to decorate one Halloween shape with the nouns in the correct category. She had a pumpkin shape, a bat, a ghost, and a witch for them to choose, write on, and then color. This made a good-looking Halloween bulletin board that said, "Halloween Nouns". It was a great activity! I hope you can understand this, and that it helps!! Good luck to you - I hate those observations!
