English Grammar

Adverbs (5 min)

Gary and Abby have a new card game called Adverb Attack... except they’re not sure how to play. Let’s learn the rules of the game together and learn all about adverbs at the same time! This Miniclip outlines what adverbs are and the four different types – how, where, when, and how often. Through the use of a simple card game, students will discover how adverbs can add more information to a verb, and how to identify adverbs in writing.

Verbs (5:30 min)

The Monster House is wild with activity! It’s Igor’s birthday, and his friends and family are organising a surprise party for him. With a house this busy, there is an abundance of verbs to explore! This Miniclip details the four verbs types – doing verbs, thinking verbs, saying verbs, and relating verbs. Students can explore how verbs are anchored in time with tense through the examples provided and class activities.

Contractions (4:10 min)

Gary and Liz have heard that their local council wants to build a shopping centre on their favourite park. They’re trying to come up with some snappy slogans to use at the rally to save the park. Maybe using some contractions will help save the park! This Miniclip looks at what contractions are, the rules of creating them, and the role that apostrophe’s play to signal missing letters. Students will also discover that contractions are part of informal language and create a casual tone – which wouldn’t be suitable in their letter to the mayor!

Adjctives (5:20 min)

Pat has lost her cat Donut, so she’s enlisted the help of Officer Ray to find her! But her police report has no useful information that will help find Donut. Perhaps if she uses adjectives to describe Donut, they will be able to find her faster! This Miniclip investigates five different types of adjectives—possessive, describing, numbering, classifying, and comparing adjectives. Students will learn how to make writing more expressive, and how they can expand simple noun groups into more descriptive ones!

Nouns (5:20 min)

Vito has been reading before bed – and now his dream is full of nouns! This Miniclip dives into Vito’s dream to investigate the different types of nouns – common nouns, proper nouns, and pronouns – and how they represent peoples, places, objects, and ideas. Students will also learn to recognise that capital letters signal proper nouns and how to recognise the different nouns in their writing.

Conjunctions (5:40 min)

Abby has just finished writing a letter to her pen pal Igor – but her dog Mylo ripped it all up! Can you help Abby piece her letter back together with the help of conjunctions? This Miniclip explores the power of conjunctions and how they can combine clauses into compound sentences for more interesting and cohesive writing. Common coordinating and subordinating conjunctions such as ‘and’, ‘but, ‘so’, ‘or’, and ‘because’ are featured in this video, with plenty of other examples mentioned.
