School House Rock Grammar Songs
Grammar Songs from SchoolHouse Rock Videos are Timeless
Countless kids (and more than a few teens) have learned their adverbs and adjectives from these nine Schoolhouse Grammar Rock video songs. My classes, like those across the country, have unpacked their adjectives and spent some time at Conjunction Junction. Even though they're "old school," kids enjoy them as much today as when they were originally released in the 1970s and 80's.
In addition to these musical mnemonics, I've included some lesson plan links and links to "new school" interactive websites to help your kids learn their English grammar.
