Students’ Learning Outcomes
· Identify and differentiate between countable and uncountable nouns.
Information for Teacher
· The concept of countable nouns can be difficult for young students to understand easily. Visual examples are useful in helping the students understand the difference.
· A noun can be countable or uncountable. Countable can be “counted”, they have a singular ( a book, an apple) and plural form (three books two apples).
· Uncountable nouns cannot be counted. Uncountable nouns are materials, concepts, information, etc. Which are not individual objects and cannot be counted. Example: water, sand, rice, sugar, air, etc.
