Gender of nouns is the word that is is used to refer to either creatures are males , females or non living things .

Males are females are the words that are used to say if we are boys or girls  or if someone is man or woman .

Living things are either male or female. Noun gender is the classification of noun based on masculine and feminine categories. Masculine nouns are words used for men, boys and male animals. Feminine nouns are words used for women, girls and female animals.

You can group the class into two- boys and girls. Let them understand that all the boys belongs to the male gender and all the girls belong to the female gender. Use their mummies and daddies, uncles and aunts, brothers and sisters as striking examples for the children.
