Jan 6, 2012 Learning Language Arts Through Lapbooking In the Hands of a Child Homeschooling, Lapbooking, Unit Add-Ons 0 Comment Here are a couple of poems that will help you learn your parts of speech. I remember learning these when I was in school! The Parts of Speech Every name is called a NOUN, As field and fountain, street and town; In place of noun the PRONOUN stands As he and she can clap their hands; The ADJECTIVE describes a thing, As magic wand and bridal ring; The VERB means action, something done- To read, to write, to jump, to run; How things are done, the ADVERBS tell, As quickly, slowly, badly, well; The PREPOSITION shows relation, As in the street, or at the station; CONJUNCTIONS join, in many ways, Sentences, words, or phrase and phrase; The INTERJECTION cries out, “Hark! I need an exclamation mark!” Through poetry, we learn how each of these make up THE PARTS OF SPEECH. The Nine Parts of Speech Three little words you often see, Are articles- a, an, and the. A noun’s the name of anything As school, garden, hoop, or swing. An adjective tells the kind of noun- Great, small, pretty, white, or brown. Instead of nouns the pronouns stand- Her head, his face, your arm, my hand. Verbs tell of something to be done, To read, sing, jump, or run. How things are done the adverbs tell, As slowly, quickly, ill, or well. Conjunctions join words together, As men and women, windor weather. Theprepositions stands before A noun, as at or through the door. The interjection shows surprise, As ah! How pretty-Oh! how wise. The whole are called nine parts of speech, Which reading, writing, speaking teach. Be sure and check out Operation: English GrammarProject Pack for help with parts of speech!
