After introducing each type of noun in a mini lesson, I used the cards as a morning meeting sorting greeting. Then I put the set in a center for kids to complete the sorting task and recording sheet independently. Even thought I teach first grade, my kids were able to complete the tasks because the first noun sort we did as a class was the person/place/thing sort that uses all the noun cards from the four other sorts. Students were already familiar with the words when it was time to work independently.
Here's a freebie noun sort for possessive nouns! It goes with the noun sort pack and includes word cards, sorting headers, recording sheet, and mini poster. I used this with my kids in the Daily 5 Word Work station. It works for 1st (after whole class practice or mini lesson) and 2nd grades and would be a good review or grammar mini lesson for 3rd grade.
