|A noun is a word that names a person, place or thing. Often a noun is the subject of a sentence. The subject tells who or what the sentence is about.|
Example: Sue drank some punch.
In the above sentence Sue is the subject.
A sentence can have many nouns, but not all of them would be subjects.
Some sentences have two subjects.
Usually, the noun that is the subject will come at the beginning of the sentence.
Sometimes, other words will come before the subject. When this happens, look for who or what the sentence is about.
Directions: All the nouns in the following sentences have been underlined. Identify the subject(s) in each sentence. Write five more sentences and identify nouns in them.
