Words are Categorical series
[I'm not sure where I first saw this series recommended, so my apologies for not being able to give the proper credit where it is due.]
You've bought the Schoolhouse Rock video for your kids, and they can sing along with classics like "Conjunction Junction" and "A Noun's a Person, Place, or Thing" with the best of them... and yet, something seems... missing. Oh, I don't know... maybe a picture book or two, that they could read on their own and find engaging enough to keep them coming back.
Well, here it is! Brian P. Cleary is the author of the Words are Categorical series -- a fun way to teach younger elementary children parts of speech. (although you may find your older kids peering through them now and again!)
Seriously, how much fun is it to learn prepositions with lines like:
"Across the way,
through the yard of Chris the hippie."
It's well worth a trip to the library to find a few of these! (I'll make it even easier for you... it's in the juvenile section, 428.2... )
[just as a personal aside, those aren't my favorite Schoolhouse Rock videos... without a doubt, my favorites were Interjections! and Fireworks.]
