Adjective Girl’s Story
Hi boys and girls,
Hello Ms. Anderson.
Today we are going to talk about something called
the eight parts of speech.
The Grammar Crew has developed characters for each part of speech
to help us remember what each part is about. The parts of speech
are the things that we use to make sense of all the things that we
say and write.
The part of speech that we will talk about today is called the
Adjective. We will use one
The Grammar Crew’s Eight Parts of
Speech Characters to help us understand what an
adjective is and how we can use it to help us communicate.

pretty in that sentence
because she would be telling you and showing you what Theresa is.
Now would anyone like to give me an example of a sentence of their
own and how I would be used in that sentence?

good because that would be
describing how the movie was.

we can better utilize the eight parts of speech, we can make our
communication both written and verbal much better and more
