Nouns with Proper Pete and common cat!!!

This week we were studying proper and common nouns. I decided to make these page toppers. I plan to keep the pages and just take the list off to make a new one with my students next year. If you don't want to draw you could find images that would work. (That was the easier and quicker idea of my neighbor teacher. I should have ran the idea by her before I drew my own. :)) We read a Pete the Cat book as a fun intro. At first, I gave the students the proper and common and had them discuss and decide which was which. Then I started giving them one and having them decide on what the other could be. I also underlined where I used capitals for the proper nouns. They did great with it and I was able to clarify misunderstanding along the way. They were really engaged!
