Six True Words

Take a look at the picture. Find the right words. Tell the story.

There are eight parts of speech in the English language: noun, pronoun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection.

First, find out the nouns.

A noun is a word that depicts a person, place, thing, or idea. Common nouns are things like house and tree, and they are not capitalized. Proper nouns are specific names, like Rex or Ella, and they are always capitalized. 

Hey, how about pronouns?

A pronoun is a word used in place of a noun. Example: I, they (the dogs), he (the boy), our (something belonging to us).

Very well. Now, let’s look for adjectives.

Adjectives are words that describe nouns within sentences. They usually answer questions that someone might have about the noun. Depending on the form of the adjective, it may also have a suffix, such as -ish, -ous or -ful.

Great! It is time to identify verbs.

A verb is a word that describes an action or being. Words like run, jump, think, and look are all verbs because they describe actions.  

Verbs go well with adverbs. Let’s find them!

An adverb is a word that modifies or describes verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.” Many common adverbs end in -ly, like quicklyusually, and completely, but not all adverbs dosuch as verynowhere, and sometimes.

Now, all you need is a bunch of prepositions and conjunctions to tell your story!

A preposition is a word placed before a noun or pronoun to form a phrase modifying another word in the sentence. For example: from, to, by, on, under.

A conjunction joins words, phrases, or clauses, and indicates the relationship between them: and, but, or, nor, for, so, because, although, while, since, etc. 

Congratulations! You did great! Now, you have a list of words to write down your unique story. You can share it with us (in the comments below) or keep it for yourself and your friends.
