grammar in a nutshell

Three little words you often see Are Articles-A, An, and The.
 A Noun's the name of anything,
As School, or Garden, Hoop or Swing.
Adjectives tell the kind of Noun,
As Great, Small, Pretty, White or Brown.
Instead of Nouns the Pronouns stand
Her head, His face, Your arm, My hand.
Verbs tell something being done
To Read, Count, Laugh, Sing, Jump or Run.
 How things are done the Adverbs tell,
 As Slowly, Quickly, Ill, or Well.
Conjunctions join the words together
 As men And women, wind Or weather.
The preposition stands before
A Noun, as In or Through a door.
The Interjection shows surprise,
As Oh! how pretty! Ah! how wise!
The Whole are called Nine Parts of Speech,
Which reading, writing, speaking teach.
