Worksheet Overview

A noun is a word that refers to a person, place or thing. It is sometimes called a naming word.


Here are some nouns:







A pronoun is a word that is used instead of a noun.


Look at these two sentences. Can you spot the difference?


dog wagging tail

Fido barked and then Fido wagged his tail.

Fido barked and then he wagged his tail.
