Music for Grammar Nerds

Even as a teenager in the 1970s, I was a grammar nerd.

I loved it that network TV hosted Schoolhouse Rock, especially the Grammar Rock segments, though Multiplication Rock segments were fun too. What could be better than grooving to "Conjunction Junction" or "Adjective"?

Take a trip back in time as you watch these video shorts. Or if Grammar Rock is new to you, I hope you fall in love with it. Share it with a child and create another grammar nerd. (Temptation whispers in your ear: You can buy the thirtieth-anniversary Schoolhouse Rock DVD here. You know you want it.)

"The Tale of Mr. Morton"

"Adjective"

Yay! It's raining today and this is going to keep my boys from climbing the walls.

Hurray! Something for the boy to watch on YouTube that doesn't have cars, trains, or Mickey Mouse (although I have to admit that the House of Mouse cartoons in French—like this one—have become a household favorite).

The videos aren't available anymore I guess. :(

Ginni, thanks for the heads-up. I've updated the links to all of the videos.
