Songs that teach parts of speech

Culturally Relevant Teaching in Action!

Songs were written by a 10th grade English teacher who tested them in grades 1-10. It is designed to teach students the parts of speech, the basic rules of grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary. Definitions and rules are taught through catchy songs which are highly effective memory aids, "earbuds". The songs cover verbs, nouns, sentences, pronouns, compound personal pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, apostrophes, prepositions, direct objects, capitalization, plurals, irregular verbs, quotations marks, and 72 Greek & Latin prefixes and suffixes.

How can you do the same with music relevant to your students culture?
