I wanted to pass on this grammar poem that I just received today from a homeschool group.
I hope it is helpful to everyone.
The Parts of Speech in Rhyme
By: Alfred J. Lawrence, Michigan
1 A noun's the name of any thing,
As school, or garden, hoop, or swing.
2 Adjectives tell the kind of noun,
As great, small, pretty, white, or brown.
3 Instead of nouns, the pronouns stand--
Her head, his face, your arm, my hand.
4 Verbs tell of something to be done--
To read, count, sing, laugh, jump, or run.
5 How things are done, the adverbs tell,
As slowly, quickly, ill or well.
6 Conjunctions join the words together --
As men and women, wind or weather.
7 The preposition stands before
A noun, as in, or through a door.
8 The interjection shows surprise,
As oh! how pretty -- ah! how wise.
The whole are called the parts of speech,
Which reading, writing, speaking, teach.
