asked Apr 16 in Education & Reference by Deep (470 points)

I found this beautifully written poem 'The Parts of Speech Poem' and Iam sure this will help kids in learning parts of speech with ease. I would also like to invite you all to create a different variation of this poem.
Here goes the poem.
           The Parts Of Speech Poem

        Every name is called a noun,
        As field and fountain, street and town.
        In place of noun, the pronoun stands,
        As he and she can clap their hands.
        The adjective describes a thing,
        As magic wand or bridal ring.
        The verb means action, something done,
        To read and write, to jump and run.
        How things are done the adverbs tell,
        As quickly, slowly, badly, well.
        The preposition shows relation,
        As in the street or at the station.
        Conjunctions join, in many ways,
        Sentences, words, or phrase and phrase.
        The interjection cries out, ''Hark!
        I need an exclamation mark!''
