I do volunteer tutoring in "Language Arts". It is that time of school year where papers, tests, etc. are prevalent. The Department of unEducation obviously has no interest in this topic. The proof is in my students.

My question is what are the basic eight parts of speech.

BANJOJACK AND OLDGRINGO MAY NOT RESPOND :!: :!: :!: I know you two know them.

I thought there were 9 parts of speech: articles, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections.

"What does it matter at this point" as someone said recently. Our schools have made a decision to not teach cursive any longer. Why would our kids care?
Don't get me wrong,
these type skills, to me are crucial to the education of our students. No wonder we travel so low in the world education ladder.

With the kind of books and things coming out into the world lately none of it fits with what the kids are doing today. they converse in elements not words. LOL, CU2s all kinds of weird stuff that adults have no idea what the heck they are sending. It is or has become a new language. Nouns, verbs, what the heck are they?? Who needs them anyway, They usually talk to the parents in grunts and groans.

You ARE NOT stupid. I went for eight as it was a question on the program "Are You Smarter Then A 5th Grader" years ago.

To some degree, we may disagree on one subject. If our students could learn grammar, spelling, reading, etc., I would have no problem giving up cursive. There are just some battles worth losing to win the war.

My son gave me a list of the codes, just to keep me informed. My grandson sends me text messages and I had to laminate my son's list. When my children talk to me, they know better than grunt or groan. If they grunt, they will receive a pig as a gift, they get the message. If they groan, I call 911 to report them ill. One time I took my youngest son to hospital because I was asking him a question and he let out a long groan. Fixed that problem. And ya and unuhh are not words in my house, if you can not talk; I give you a pacifier and a blanket. Fixed that problem pretty quick. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Ohhhhh..... no, you misunderstood. What I was saying is I am not up to a 4th grade level in English and those classes were long ago. I got the degree in computer engineering so would not be required to write well. I can see how it may have been misunderstood. So sorry!

Not financially, currently, a good idea for the hospital or 911. The costs would be prohibitive; however, the pacifier and blanket ARE a great idea, even now!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

But, I did call 911 and my son had to tell the rescue team that appeared at our door where he was hurting. Yes, I had a $600 bill, but it was worth it! I have never seen him so lost for words, because as he was trying to say he was okay, the young woman had already gotten his shirt off and was poking his stomach. She had a tourniquet out to do a blood draw....scared the.... well, out of him. From that point on he was sure to answer my questions. The other son, he was with me in the car and down in the chin, so I was trying to find out what was troubling him. I asked about his girlfriend and he groaned. I was near hospital, so I pulled in. He asked me why, and I explained the meaning and the urgency of a groan.
