Adjectives Flocabulary Lyrics

Ladies and gentleman... Random presents: Adjectives. Adjectives are describing words, as you may know. But they can be used in many, many, many ways. Listen up. Were talking about Size, like tiny; Opinion, like wise; Feelings, like happy, sad or otherwise; Age, like antique; Color, like brown. Adjectives are words that describe nouns. (x2) Sometimes you just need more info, You need words to keep descriptions from being simple. And they're asking the reasoning, Think of words as food, and adjectives? They would be the seasoning. One time I had a little puppy, Six-month-old Collie by the name of Lucky. Every day we would run and frolic all playfully, Til I lost my grip on the leash, she got away from me. Made signs to put up around the neighborhood, Hoping someone saw her and she wouldn't stay away for good. Without those describing words, I don't think I would've had a chance of finding her. Were talking about

Size, like tiny; Opinion, like wise; Feelings, like happy, sad or otherwise; Age, like antique; Color, like brown. Adjectives are words that describe nouns. (x2) Something you need to know before you write it down, Adjectives will more than likely come before a noun. The big bad wolf? Big and bad are adjectives, Stir 'em in the pot, no artificial additives. Hear my advice and take this, Master the basics and watch your grades rise like cake mix. Any good recipes got those in the mixture, And those are descriptors so now you get the picture. Last thing I'll add which is definitely worth mentioning, Adjectives usually describe intensity. Add an -er, an -est, Now it's nicer, or the nicest thing that I've ever seen. Brighter than the bright light, that would be the brightest, Grammar is free, but adjectives are priceless. Thank you for listening, and remember this, If you enjoy something, be sure you can describe it! Size, like tiny; Opinion, like wise; Feelings, like happy, sad or otherwise; Age, like antique; Color, like brown.

Capitalization Flocabulary Lyrics

The pronoun "I"? Capitalize. When you get specific? Capitalize Title before a name? Capitalize All proper nouns? Capitalize Now let's try it again with hardly any capitals...

Man! I ever tell you about my trip to New York City? It was crazy! I mean, its not the capital or anything, but theres a lot of things out there that deserve capitals. Check it out... My Grandma Nelly, Uncle Rob and I, Went to New York City, yeah it was July. We flew JetBlue, landed at JFK, Went to The Met, saw the Mets, it was a Saturday. There was traffic 'cause President Barack Obama, Was visiting Queens, that was causing drama. I was reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, In the back of a Subaru, sipping a Coke. It was Independence Day, I'm not Will Smith, see, But I started liking this day real quickly. And, I bought a I NYC tee, Down on Canal Street, they were speaking Chinese. An FBI van zoomed right by me, I saw dudes in Central Park doing tai chi. I even saw a mural of B.I.G., Overall, it was a fun trip to the East. Im saying, When you get specific? Capitalize. First word of a sentence? Capitalize. Months and days? Capitalize.

My grandma and my uncle and me, We took a trip last summer to a big city. We landed at the airport after taking a plane, Saw some art and baseball, what a long day. There was traffic, because the president was in town, And that was causing drama, it was hard to get around. I was reading a book, I don't know what it was called, In the back of a car, sipping soda with a straw. It was a holiday, and I'm not an actor, But it was good day, and what came after. I bought a t-shirt and a sandwich, Down on some street, they were speaking a language. I almost got hit by a police car, I saw dudes in the park, they were doing martial arts. I even saw a big mural up on the wall, It was a fun trip, overall.

Nouns Flocabulary Lyrics


Hey man, hey, Im really hungry. Yeah, me too Frankie. Alright, well... I heard of a new spot in town. Well alright, Ill try it as long as its not too fancy. Have you heard about a chef named Shelly? She cooks up food that you can put into your belly. It's always tasty, and it's never smelly. Well, hey, is there anything else that you can tell me? Yes! She does things a little different, And cooks up nouns when she's working in the kitchen. Well, how? What, you don't know about a noun? It's a person, place, thing, or idea. Oh, I know now. Like for breakfast, the chef cooked eggs from a farm, And she drank milk from cows in a barn. What about an idea? You can't cook that! But she cooked with some love when she made flapjacks. Most nouns you can feel with the senses, but ideas you have to think about. Oh, I get this. After cooking, Shelly was looking around, And saw we were ready to devour some nouns. The flapjacks, eggs and milk weren't enough, So she went into the kitchen and made some other stuff: Apple frittata, spaghetti and meatballs, Lobsters from Maine and some tacos with cheese sauce. Excuse me, but I only eat nouns. Well, you can eat all of these! That's how we get down. How? Cooking in the kitchen with Shelly for sure,

Using nouns all around, yeah I know you heard. Look, there she is! I'm the chef and I love to cook. I have a lot of nouns in my recipe book. Places, things, ideas and people, When it comes to a chef there is no equal. I'm in the kitchen and I love getting down. Cooking with What?! I'm cooking with nouns. Maybe one day I'll make it out to your town, Cause Im cooking with What?! Im cooking with nouns. Now Chef Shelly had a friend coming by, So all of her nouns needed to get pluralized. Usually you just add an "s," And things that are single are more and not less. But some nouns are unique, Like the two fish that she just caught from the creek. She cuts with one knife, Choosing from a few knives, And she chews with her teeth, not tooths. That's right. It's her friend, Miss Proper She gets real specific and nobody can stop her. She came in her car. Well, what kind? A Ford. How many more proper nouns can you find? Well, she brought grapes over from the state of Oregon, From a farmer, I mean from Farmer Morgan. Most of the time they get capitalized, There's so many proper nouns right in front of your eyes. I tell you what, man. What? All this talk about nouns has got me mighty hungry. Yeah, me too, Frankie. Well lets have a roll call.

Ok, lets count em down. Here we go. Cmon! Person: me, your teacher, Ms. Brown Place: Venice Beach, or a building downtown Things: Hula hoops, a wolf or this song Ideas: I feel hunger, but I won't for long, cause... I'm the chef and I love to cook. I have a lot of nouns in my recipe book. Places, things, ideas and people, When it comes to a chef there is no equal. I'm in the kitchen and I love getting down. Cooking with What?! I'm cooking with nouns. Maybe one day I'll make it out to your town, Cause Im cooking with What?! Im cooking with nouns. Well hey man, Chef Shelly, you are the bomb dotcom. You know what I'm saying? I know, right? I mean... That was the best meal Ive ever had. I have never had this food so good. Ive never... And who would have thought it was all just a bunch of nouns. I know, its crazy! Everythings a noun! Yup. Just about... I mean, a person a place or a thing Yeah, even ideas too. And Im out. Peace

Parts of Speech Flocabulary Lyrics It goes... Noun, verb, adjective, adverb, Pronoun, preposition, conjunction, interjection. Uh-uh, uh-uh, pardon me, We're uh running through the p-p-p-pparts of speech. Nouns are people, things and places, Ideas and concepts, so face it. Your face is a noun, your name is a noun, I see nouns all around when I roll through the town: Chris, sidewalk, conversation, Kitten, popcorn, and some patience, Unicorn, dreams, shoelace, kings, Nouns are ideas, people, places and things. A verb expresses action, like "I see," Or a state of being like the verb to be. So we sing, you sang, he sings songs, We brought her, you should bring him along. Adjectives? - that's where the magic is. They modify a noun or a pronoun, wow. The big bad wolf had hairy paws, Sharp little teeth and scary claws. It goes... Noun, verb, adjective, adverb, Pronoun, preposition, conjunction, interjection, Uh-uh uh-uh, pardon me, We're uh running through the p-p-p-pparts of speech. x2 Pronouns replace nouns, a little bit, Instead of a specific thing, you could use "it," Or me or mine or you or we, Or that or this or hers or she. Want to quickly modify a verb? You really need an adverb, ya heard? You can usually take an adjective and add "-ly", So we easily won the game last night. The prepositions in a sentence are the links, Like on, in, at, upon and against. Prepositions tell you where and when, Go up by the rock to see all of your friends. And, but, or - those are conjunctions, They link up phrases, that's their function. Yet they No! Don't forget interjections, yo! They interrupt things like Hey! Or Whoa! It goes Noun, verb, adjective, adverb, Pronoun, preposition, conjunction, interjection, Uh-uh uh-uh, pardon me, We're uh running through the p-p-p-pparts of speech. x4

Prepositions Flocabulary Lyrics Yo. You kids know about prepositions? Well, this storys filled with prepositions. Check it out. I woke up. Got out of bed, Put my favorite cap on my head. Grabbed my dog's leash in my hand, While I tied the other end to him. Got onto the skateboard, I hopped, And my dog started running down the block. My dog moves fast like a bobsled, At least that's what my mom said. My dog sped across the street, I was being dragged fast, trying not to freak. Then he ran past Mike, a bully I hate, Mike got on his bike, and he started to chase. Instead of stopping, my dog kept going, He ran through a park, and he wasn't slowing. Mike was chasing after us, I tried to leave him in the dust, but I guess I needed a... Prep-prep-prep-prep-preposition, It tells you about a thing and its position. When it went down, so now listen, If youre riding through the city then you're not missing a... (x2) We kept skating, and son, you'd be amazed, That I saw more than one prepositional phrase:

I went underneath a bridge; it was over water. It helped us lose Mike so we went a bit farther. We kept going and didn't want to stop, Until the moment that we got to the ice cream shop. Two scoops on top of the cone, Sprinkles all over it, holmes! After that we headed home, Towards the spot where I rest my dome. But during the ride, my dog got loose, He ran up to a guy and started sniffing the dude. I grabbed his leash awfully tight, I saw my dog was standing underneath Mike. Fast forward ten year later, Mike and I own a pet shop in Decatur. Prep-prep-prep-prep-preposition, It tells you about a thing and its position. When it went down, so now listen, If youre riding through the city then you're not missing a... (x2)

Subject and Predicate Flocabulary Lyrics Find the verb, the main verb in a sentence, Then ask yourself who or what did it? That's the subject. Like a sentence's captain, Subjects make verbs happen. So: Dana couldn't stop laughing. "Dana" is the subject, she's doing the action. She was rolling on the floor. "She" is the subject, are you keeping score? The other kids started laughing, too. "The other kids" is the subject, that's true. Her teacher told her to stop, please. "Her teacher" is the subject, yes indeed. But let's get a little more tricky, This one's messy, so follow along with me: Despite her teacher asking, Dana couldn't stop giggling and laughing. Now - you might say that "her teacher" comes first, But "her teacher" is not the one doing the main verb. It's "Dana," the subject once again, Now keep your head bobbing while the hook comes in, Come on, A subject does what subjects love to do, Predicates are what they do. Subjects and predicates too, Make all sentences' dreams come true. (x2) If you want to know what the subject does,

it's evident, You better go get the predicate. It's based on a verb, the subject's action, Let's get back to Dana and see what happens: Dana told her friend a joke. "Told her friend a joke" is the predicate, yo. The whole class started chuckling. "Started chuckling" is the predicate, once again. Or you find the simple subject, simple predicate, These are just the main noun and verb that we've got to get. Take: The girl with the tattoo ate a cashew. The subject is "The girl with the tattoo," The simple subject would just be "girl" true. The predicate would be "ate a cashew." The simple predicate? That would be "ate," We've got grammar, now we're getting cash--who could ever hate? A subject does what subjects love to do, Predicates are what they do. Subjects and predicates too, Make all sentences' dreams come true. (x2)

Verbs Flocabulary Lyrics V to the E to the R to the Bs, Everywhere I go that's all I see. I want action and I want it free. I grab some verbs; that's all I need. (x2) I think, I dance, I move, I sleep, yes sir that's an action, too. My favorite verb would have to be The verb to be, it works masterfully. I am, you are, it is, yep! He was, we were, she has been, They're being, you will be soon, With no verbs, what would we do? Some verbs help you know more--that's good, Like could, should, would. I could have gone to the little pond. I should have planned for it all along, but I did it wrong. I would have have fun playing in the pond with the swans. Ya, I coulda, shoulda, woulda, but instead I wrote a little song. These words don't mean you did it: But if you say, "I'll do it" - then you're committed, V to the E to the R to the Bs, Everywhere I go that's all I see. I want action and I want it free. I grab some verbs; that's all I need. (x2) Verbs move, verbs chill, Verbs can give you life, and verbs can kill.

My verbs tell me when, Will it be in the future? Or was it in the past tense? I ran down the block, I was running, I run a lot, right now I'm running. I will run tomorrow, you copy? I ran through the tenses, and nobody could stop me. In the past tense some verbs aren't easy, Usually to make it past add an -ed, Like: he slips, you can say he slipped, She flips, yeah, say she flipped. But take this word: the word "take," If you say I taked, you would make a mistake, I took, he didn't shaked, he shook, Not selled, its sold, not telled, its told, c'mon! V to the E to the R to the Bs, Everywhere I go that's all I see. I want action and I want it free. I grab some verbs; that's all I need. (x2)
