Grammar Rock Adjective

My favorite was the "interjections" one.

"Interjections are emotions-- divided by an exclamation point, or by comma when the feelin's not as strong. So when you're happy (HURRAY!) or Mad (RATS!) or frightened (EEK!) or sad (AWWW!) an interjection starts the sentence right!" And if you grew up in the seventies you could sing that whole thing. I have the whole DVD of them. I think Noah digs the math ones. (Dig? I've gone back to the seventies on vocabulary as well. Make it stop!)

My favorite was "Conjunction Junction what's your Function"

I loved that! We have the DVD too.
I'll loan it to you Mindy, if you want the boys to see the rest!

Hi Mindy- Loved the song and education about adjectives. However, it was a bit of a surprise to get a grammar lesson right after my immediate thought that you may have used poor grammar in your blog today-- you started a paragraph in the middle of it with Anyways, and I had just thought that I would have written Anyway..... Is there any way (no pun intended) to check which is correct?? Aunt Chris

OMG..this brought back so many memories !! Thanks !!

Aunt Chris,

I'm pretty sure that your way is correct. I really don't try to hard with the grammar in my blog posts, I figure it's more like talking than writing. But if you find it distracting I may have to re-think that.

I'm much better at remember song tunes than actual grammar rules, it's when the two collide that things work out best.

My personal fav was "I'm just a bill, on capitol hill"

I loved Just a Bill, but "Lolly, lolly, lolly get your adverbs here" really sticks in my head. I bought them for the boys and they love them just as much as I do. In fact, when Gus is doing his math homework I've heard him singing the count by five's song. Regarding wrestling . . . Gus absolutely loved it until he was clocked in the mouth by an elbow. Oddly enough after that it was NO fun anymore.
