English Language

The joys of sentences! Yea right.
Steve and I are suddenly having a crash course in the English language and the full use of it....mainly with regards to sentences.
Did you know there are so many different types of sentences?
  • Simple
  • Compound
  • Conjunctioned
And suddenly we have to be able to explain to an 8 yr old what this means again because he can't remember from school!
Luckily for us we have the power of being an English Major being a parent with the internet and Google.

We also have to remember Verbs, Nouns, Adjectives and how they work, what they do and then just to confuse things we, not Ben, start discussing over whether or not the noun we are thinking of is a proper noun or not just to confuse both of us even further!

I last did this type of English work at school and I left there in 1987!

The joys of parenting ........... may it go on for ever!
