tiny tale #6: Abstract

A fifth-grade classroom

Teacher: An abstract noun is a type of noun that refers to something with which a person cannot physically interact. Some examples of abstract nouns are love, hate, beauty, truth, bravery. Can you name some other examples?

Haley: My parents?

The teacher stood speechless, stunned by the eight-year-old orphan’s response.
