Summary

THE PARTS OF SPEECH

Visit a neighborhood for every part of speech! From the shady pronoun always trying to take the noun’s place to the motherly conjunction who just wants everyone to get along, our approach personifies the parts of speech based on the roles they play in the sentence, increasing both engagement and retention.

PUNCTUATION

Become a grammar cadet in the Punctuation Department! Let tender-hearted Officer Period, no-nonsense Chief Comma, and police dogs Hyphen and Dash show you the ropes as you learn how to punctuate, abbreviate, and capitalize your writing properly. The Punctuation Department is the police force of Grammaropolis, keeping the sentences running smoothly.

THE PARTS OF THE SENTENCE

The Sentence Factory is hiring! Now that you know the parts of speech and punctuation, you’re ready to help produce our town’s #1 export: grammatically correct sentences. Our songs and personalized puzzles will teach you all about how a sentence is put together: subjects and predicates, objects, subject complements, and more!
