Grammar Rock

“As your body grows bigger, your mind must flower,

it’s great to learn, ‘cause knowledge is power."

Join Schoolhouse Rocky as he takes you and your friends

down to the Conjunction Junction Diner, where the special

of the day is Grammar Rock. Learning the rules of grammar

is easy when you sing along with Schoolhouse Rock. Rocky

serves up your favorite Grammar Rock views from the

jukebox, including:

Schoolhouse Rock!: Unpack Your Adjectives (3/2/1974) — How adjectives modify nouns.

Schoolhouse Rock!: Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here (4/13/1974) — Adverbs answer

these questions: How? Where? When? Condition? Reason?

Schoolhouse Rock!: Conjunction Junction (11/17/1973) — How conjunctions hook up words

and phrases and clauses!

Schoolhouse Rock!: Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla (4/27/1976) — Using pronouns, because

“saying all those nouns, can really wear you down.”

Schoolhouse Rock!: Verb: That’s What’s Happening (9/22/1973) — A verb tells it like it is, to be,

to see, to feel, to live.

Schoolhouse Rock!: A Noun Is A Person Place Or Thing (9/15/1973) — A noun’s a special kind

of word, it’s any name you ever heard.

Schoolhouse Rock!: The Tale Of Mr. Morton (9/11/1993) — “Mr. Morton is the subject of

                      [Bones Chattering]

WHOA! BOY, THAT WAS

ONE BIG, UGLY BEAR!

YOU CAN EVEN MAKE ADJECTIVES

OUT OF THE OTHER PARTS

OF SPEECH,

LIKE VERBS OR NOUNS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS TACK ON AN ENDING,

LIKE “IC” OR “ISH” OR “ARY.”

FOR EXAMPLE, THIS BOY

CAN GROW UP TO BE

A HUGE MAN…

BUT STILL HAVE

A BOYISH FACE.

“BOY” IS A NOUN,

BUT THE ENDING “ISH” MAKES IT

AN ADJECTIVE, “BOYISH.”

THAT DESCRIBES

THE HUGE MAN’S FACE.
