What you may not be able to see, is that each definition is on a separate piece of poster board, approx. 2 1/2 inches tall. They are affixed to the main poster board with velcro. This means, I can take them down, and shuffle them around. Then Geek Boy’s challenge is to check the poster throughout the day, and correct it if it’s wrong.
He’s been singing SchoolHouse Rocks Grammar Rock songs for two days now. His fav is”Unpack my adjectives” followed closely by “Conjunction Junction”. Who said you can’t learn anything from TV? *S*
The poster has been a big hit. Even the little two are getting into the act. ThePinkDiva pointed out the morning that the “U” (in the word Used) was next to the “N” (in the word Noun) and that it wasn’t right! So GeekBoy jumped up and fixed the poster to be right.
It’s fun. Since he never knows when the poster will be wrong, it throws a bit of intrigue into learning the Parts of Speech.
Just for fun, here’s the two favorite Schoolhouse Rocks songs. Enjoy!
