Brain Break - Mad Libs and Mad Libs Reverse

Putt..Putt..Putting along here and wanted to finish my Mad Libs sheets yesterday, but it was too pretty not to take some advantage of this beautiful weather we are having!

What do I have today? I made up some Mad Lib stories that I felt students could have a little fun with, while practicing parts of speech. My 7-year-old daughter (1st grader) enjoys Mad Libs also, and has learned some new parts of speech along the way! I have included directions with how I plan to use the document.

Additionally, I included some word lists that I will provide students. They must create their own silly or normal story using the words provided (lists contian a variety of parts of speech). As I was making the word lists, I realized that this could also be a great time to time in some vocabulary, as some students may have a difficult time figuring out the best use for each word, such as "franically." You could have some discussion of what that would look like or sound like... Use it as you see best for your sweeties!

You can get these here!
