Funbrain has brought the traditional fun of Mad Libs (Junior) to the internet. Students can choose from four categories: Once Upon a....., Prehistoric, School Rules!, and Alphabet. Once they choose a category, they continue on to complete each blank using the identified parts of speech. The most commonly used parts of speech are nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. A word bank is available for additional assistance. After students have filled in all of the blanks, the finished copy is presented and students can simply read it or print a copy. Students get a lot of laughs from this fun activity as they reinforce concepts of parts of speech.

tag(s): grammar (214), parts of speech (67), speech (92)

In the Classroom

Extend this activity by having students change the endings of their stories or by creating their own Mad Libs to share with the class. Students can create their Mad Libs as a Word document for easy sharing. Have students work in pairs to complete the Mad Libs and read to each other or to other small groups in a think/pair/share activity. Print out the completed Mad Libs as very informal assessments for the parts of speech. Use as a review of the parts of speech in a whole group setting using a projector or interactive whiteboard. Challenge students to create "talking pictures" to illustrate or read their Mad Lib using Fotobabble reviewed here.
