Editorial Reviews

There are two types of Schoolhouse Rock fans. Type A: those who--inspired in the '70s and '80s by "Conjunction Junction" and "Interjections!"--went on to become grammar gurus, copyeditors, and computational linguists. And type B: those who--less inspired by grammar than by catchy refrains--can still sing lines that today sound less than P.C.:
Though Geraldine played hard to get (uh huh),
Geraldo knew he'd woo her yet.
He showed his affection,
Despite her objection,
And Geraldine hollered some interjections!
(Geraldo, if you'll recall, is a goat.) No matter. Both kinds of fans will enjoy revisiting these Saturday-morning shorts--and hopefully this video will find its way into classrooms, to boot. Clever teachers who grew up on this stuff will know how to make Schoolhouse Rock fans (ideally of type A) out of the next generation, too. --Erik Macki

By far my favorite of the School House Rock videos, Grammar Rock is a wonderful teaching tool for children and a fun trip down memory lane for those of us old enough to remember when it was first aired on television.
Anyone who has watched these videos knows that there is definitely a link between music and memory, and School House Rock taps into that phenomenon. With cute animation and catchy lyrics, each video utilizes music as a mnemonic device so children can remember the principles of speech just by humming a familiar tune.
Who can forget those timeless classics like "Conjunction Juntion," "Verb, That's What's Happening," "A Noun is a Person, Place or Thing," and my favorite from Grammar Rock, "Interjection!"? Many adults who grew up with these videos can still recall them today.
I urge everyone who has children to buy the entire School House Rock video set. Start with Grammar Rock, and then move on to Math, then History, then Science. Your children will thank you for it.

I grew up watching these on ABC during Saturday morning cartoons in the early/mid 70's. These are fun to watch and quite effective. The song themes like "A noun is a person, place, or thing" stick in your mind and speaking for myself they did make learning grammar a lot easier. Recommended for kids today or for anyone who was a kid in the mid 70's. Also, as with America Rock, dig that 70's cultural influence in these, like the Shaft/Superfly blaxploitation theme in the Verb segment :) They just don't make 'em like this anymore!

When my son was born, and only my singing seemed to comfort him, (my singing had never comforted anyone before...) I found myself singing "The Preamble" and "Conjunction Junction." I bought all four Schoolhouse Rock videos shortly afterwards.

He's three now, and this is his second favorite video.(after "Multiplication Rock")

He does, however, leave the room during "Busy Prepositions." I have no recollection of this one, and it doesn't measure up to the rest of the songs. I was surprised to find it was written by Bob Dorough, who wrote most of the others.

One miss, and eight hits should still warrant a five star rating. "Unpack Your Adjectives," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here," "Conjunction Junction," "Interjections," "Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla," "Verb: That's What's Happening," "A Noun is a Person Place Or Thing," and the fabulous "The Tale of Mr. Morton" are all classics.

I watched it as a child on saturday morning cartoons and now I play the tapes for my children 2 and 5. It is the best teaching cartoon music video on the market today. I keep waiting for new ones to come out!
My five year old can not yet spell or write well, but she knows what an adverb is. She is getting a strong foundation in grammar, math, history, and science from these tapes. I look forward to the complete collection in Aug 2002.
Highly recommended.

I am a twentysomething journalist who watched these snippets of education amidst my weekly stock of cartoons each Saturday morning long, long ago. We all know how receptive elementary-age children are to these cartoons, but they are done so well educationally that my editing class in college watched it (with great delight and recall of wonderful childhood memories, I might add!).
Just the fact that college students can find educational use from this video, which can also be enjoyed and useful to younger audiences is a testament to its real value. Do you realize how poorly we really grasp grammar in this country? This video, whether in your home or school's video library, will be a valuable tool. Each of the 11 parts of speech are featured. See you at "Conjunction Junction!"

If you are teaching about the various parts of speech (k-4) I would get this tape. Whenever I teach a lesson on a part of speech I usually use this tape to introduce the part we will be talking about. I cannot imagine my lessons without it! It works best if you introduce one part of speech each day by playing the tape and then doing activities that tie in with that part of speech. The kids love learning about nouns, verbs, and adjectives through this tape!

I'm one of those children of the 70s who still remembers "Grammar Rock, it's not your Gran'ma; it's your grammar" brought to us by "our very favorite general, General Foods" on Saturday morning tv. These "commercials" were better than the shows, and that's even more true today. I'm thrilled to be able to pass these gems on to my kindergartner and 2nd grader, who are mastering learning parts of speech in great part due to the time-honored technique of combining information with catchy tunes and visual images. I've found Grammar Rock to be the most useful of the Schoolhouse Rock series, but the other titles are excellent as well. My daughter's learning her times tables to the tune of "Three, It's A Magic Number"; and to this day I remember the preamble to the Constitution because of America Rock. Now if only someone with the same creative talents would add to the series...how about Geography Rock, Spelling Rock, etc.??
