This mad lib is designed to help you learn the 8 parts of speech.

A Noun: is a person, place or thing.

Noun (person):

Noun (place):

Plural: means there are multiple things instead of just one.

Noun (things – plural):

Pronouns: replace a noun in the sentence to make them shorter and more simple to read. Words like “I”, “him” and “yours” are all pronouns. For this mad lib, Possesive Pronouns work the best. They are pronouns that show who own an object. See Examples of possesive pronouns


Adjectives: describe a noun.


Prepositions: link a noun (or pronoun) to other words in a sentence. For this mad lib, avoid the following prepositions because they don’t work well in this sentence: among, but, except, of.


Interjections: insert emotion into a sentence. Usually are a single word with an exclamation mark after them. Think about someone yelling, “Yoinks! The goblins are coming.”


Conjuctions: link words or phrases together. “I’ll swim today and tomorrow.” For this mad lib, Subordinating Conjunctions work the best. They are linking words that introduce a whole new related phrase. See Examples of Subordinating Conjunctions


Verbs: are action words. When we talk about them, we usually say the word “to” before them. “To run”, “To fish”, “To jump”.


Adverbs: describe the action. The also usually end in “ly” like “quickly”.

Short Kids Poem: Respect

short kids repsect poem
My mom does not respect my toys
No matter what I do.
I’m upset that my lessons are
Failing to get through.

She stepped on all my dinosaurs.
She kicked my poor t-rex.
My pterodactyl’s muddy and
I worry ‘bout their necks.

She promised to pick up my bear
From the school bus stop,
But then she left him in the cold
So that she could go shop.

She lost my purple elephant.
She mangled my stuffed hawk.
And when we had a tea-party
She never let us talk.

I don’t think that she’d like it
If I kicked her phone
Or trampled all her flowers and
And buried her trombone.

She’s impolite. She breaks the rules.
She thinks she has to shout.
Oh I wish there was a way
To put Mom in time-out.
