Linguistic Analysis of the Rhyme
Classifying words under a particular heading is what parts of speech are. Parts of speech help us to categorise the common characteristics of words in order to talk easily. It is important because it shows us how the words relate to each other. When we assign each word a part of speech, and use them in building sentences, we actually get something meaningful. The major role is to help us to understand the sentence. My activity of understanding the grammar concept using rhymes resulted in productive learning in my young learners. The aim of this activity was to give the knowledge of what they had learnt earlier and had a practical aspect; it was presented through practice. This included Parsing of sentences, Punctuation, Real meaning of the rhyme, Figures of speech, etc.
