Nouns and Verbs


Found in: grammar and punctuation; language arts, mnemonics

These songs were created to teach a fourth grade collaborative language arts class. We enhance our appearance with anything we can find in the music teacher's storage closet. Top hats and sequin bow ties are among our favorite costumes. Songs and costumes all make for a memorable lesson and provide the added benefit of a multi-sensory approach needed for the L.D. children.

'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Noun' (To the tune of 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star'), by Mrs. Barns' & Mrs. Hyler's 4th Graders:

Twinkle, twinkle, little nouns,
I can see you all around.
Naming persons, places, and things,
Makes me want to smile and sing.
Twinkle, twinkle, little nouns
I can see you all around.


'Verbies' (Sung to the tune of 'Suwannee'):

Verbies
how I love ya
how I love ya.

My action verbies
I'd give the world to see
Those action verbies smilin' back at me
I love 'em

Verbies
Tellin' what those nouns are doin'
My action verbies

In sentences, they do all the work and
bring all those nouns to life.
