Mad Lib Activity
A Mad Lib is a popular children’s writing activity where a person fills in blanks to complete a story. Each of these blanks are labeled as different parts of speech (see above). The person must then write in a word that correlates to the given part of speech. This activity helps to engage students to learn and understand the parts of speech in an exciting and creative way. After the Mad Lib is completed, the person can choose to share their story with others and more than likely laugh out loud. These stories may shy away from common stories where a certain logic is followed, but that is the fun in it. Be creative!
