My current job is with one branch of a network of literacy centers called “I Can Read”. We teach phonics, reading, spelling, and eventually, grammar, including parts of speech.
A noun is a person, place, thing, or idea. An adjective describes a noun.
A verb is something you can do. Here’s how you test to see whether something is a verb:
I can… jump.
I can… think.
I can… window?
For some reason, “I can window” struck me as hilarious. What would that even mean, do you think?
