schoolhouse rock
« on: December 07, 2009, 11:45:51 PM »
Schoolhouse rock has a whole video series dedicated to grammar called "Grammar Rock"  Each video is a little cartoon that connects an aspect of grammar to a song. The songs are really catchy and the rhyming lyrics combined with the cartoon make each topic easy to remember and fun! 

From what I know, they have videos on conjunctions, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, interjections, verbs, nouns, prepositions, and subject/predicate.

They are a little bit dated, so the cartoons don't have a modern look to them and some of the lyrics are a little fast. (So you might want to have a typed up copy for your students to follow along with) OH and some of the grammar rules have changed a little since the publication of the videos- for example Conjunction Junction (a song about conjunctions) doesn't really include new conjunctions... so you might want to screen the videos first.


I found the video at the library, but you can probably access a lot of the videos on www.youtube.com
Here is an example of the preposition video, you can also look at the side list for links to other Grammar Rock videos:
