    I saw this old rhyme that had been used in the study of grammar. It could be used in the classroom for students to learn the basics.

    “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!’
