Transcript of Project "Learning With Music"

Hi there!

In traditional grammar we have eight parts of speech: the verb, the noun, the pronoun, the adjective, the adverb, the preposition, the conjunction, and the interjection.

Here you will have an opportunity to get some information about three of them: the nouns, the adjectives and the verbs.

A brief explanation about each of these three word parts will be given on this material.

After reading and discussing about them with your friends and teacher you will be presented with a funny and overwhelming song activity.

Three songs will be played; each song will focus on one of the parts of the speech explained here.

Your task is to listen to the song and follow along with the lyrics printed in your booklet and complete the words that are missing.

Remember that each song will focus on a different part of speech. Therefore, you have to be careful while filling in the blanks because they will be made of nouns, adjectives or verbs. Each song will explore a different part of speech.

After we go over all this procedure here, you will be back to the blog where your group will be in charge of making a production based on one of these three songs.
Your final production can be done using...
SHHH... Let's Begin!
What is a noun?
The word noun comes from the Latin word nomen which means name. Therefore, a noun is a word that gives a name to beings, animate and inanimate, concrete or abstract, things or their parts, states, objects, feelings, sensations, phenomena etc. Let's see some examples:
Now, you know what a noun is...
Let's See it in a song!!
Sympathy For The Devil
Rolling Stones
What is an adjective?
An adjective is a word which functions to modify the idea expressed by a noun, giving it a quality or an extension in meaning. The adjectives are important because they modify our perception of the things and help us to comprehend the world in a more complete way. See the difference between these two clauses.
John has a blue car.
Mary has a red car.
In both sentences, we know that John and Mary have a car. Without the help from the adjectives, we would not know whether the cars are different or similar, we need them to get more information so that we know John has a blue car and Mary has a red one.
How About another song?
Can you fill in the blanks in your booklet?
Stronger Than Me
Amy Winehouse
Moving on...
What is a verb?
A verb is a word that designates actions or states of people, animals or things about which we speak. They are important because they give us notions of what is happening and when the action is taking place. Take a look at this clause:
John bought a car yesterday.
In this clause, John performed an action, the action of buying a car. This action took place in the past, that's why we use the past of the verb buy. Remember tha in order to have the simple past and the past participle for regular verbs we just need to add the the suffix -ed to the verb. For irregular verbs, go ahead!

Now, The last Song!
Can you complete with the verbs missing?
Lilly Allen
NOW, Let's Produce!
Now that your booklet is complete, get together with your group to start working on your own production.

You are going to choose only one of the songs to get inspiration to make your own production. You can use the lyrics, the pictures on your booklet or even the video clip on the blog to guide you through having ideas about what to prepare.

Your group can do whatever can be published on the blog. It may vary from poems to compositions, photos to a video clip created by yourselves, a parody etc. The important rule is that your production be published on the blog so that your classmates and friends can comment on.
