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.

      @mlquicke: Thanks for the heads up. I've adjusted the videos, which are now copyrighted by ABC.

      I don't think school house rock was out when I was a youngster. Wishing you and yours a wonderful and peace filled holiday season. The very best of seasonal wishes.

      I used to look forward to School House Rock when I watched Saturday morning cartoons back in the 70s. Thanks for this trip down memory lane. :-)

      I would have loved learning grammar with Schoolhouse Rock but it came along a decade too late for me, what a wonderfully fun way to learn!
