Join us as we race to the finish line! Mia and Will are going to cartwheel, but Eric and I are hopping. In this lesson, students are introduced to nouns and verbs. A noun is a person, place, or thing. A verb is something you do, like run, eat, or sing. Every sentence you read or write has to have at least one noun and one verb. Like this: Jenny hops. The cat runs. The children learn!
