Happy back to school! These Mad Libs books or one of these free fill in the flank printable downloads will give you an engaging activity for the first day and help you review writing and grammar.
Back to School Story Printables (Mad Libs Style)
Teachers and parents, welcome your kids to your classroom or homeschool with these two free fill-in-the-blank printable stories (like Mad Libs) for a fun classroom or homeschool activity!
They’ll work for elementary grades two to six.
Mad Libs and fill-in-the-blank stories remind kids about parts of speech while being very entertaining.
If you need to remind kids about the gist of the parts of speech, start with these basic explanations…
nouns = person, place, or thing
verbs = action
adjective = describes something (color, size, smell)
plural = more than one (add an s or es)
Remind kids that they’ll trade papers with someone. One person asks the other person for the parts of speech and fills the words into the story. Then, they get to read the stories and giggle about all the silliness that they wrote together.

About Me Printable
Teachers want to get to know their students. Sometimes, we do these About Me activities. But here’s my twist on it — about me with creativity and giggles… (You’ll still need to do something serious at some point but this is a fun start.)
