MadLibs

Give your students the chance to have fun while practicing parts of speech. Using a Madlib book, retype the text of one of the excerpts for best results, or just make copies of it. List the parts of speech on an overhead transparency that correlate to those needed to complete the Madlib. Have your students come up with the parts of speech. When thay are finished they can get a copy of the story and fill it in. Your kids will have a great time sharing these with each other.
