Verb Charades

I just created another fun game to play with my monkeys. This is a game to help review action verbs!! I tried to create a game that included linking, helping, and state of being verbs, but it ended up becoming a big mess, so I simplified it and made it a fun charades game. You can download the game here!


Christmas Mad Libs

Can you believe it is almost Christmas? I started getting Christmas decorations out and my monkeys were shocked that I would do it before Thanksgiving. I don't really care because there is just something so magical about Christmas.

My kids really enjoyed my Thanksgiving Mad Libs, so I made a bunch more of some Christmas ones. I know Mad Libs are silly, but it helps my kids remember all the different parts of speech when we play them. My six year old is learning about nouns, verbs, adjectives, and even adverbs, just by playing these.

In this bundle I made four different pages of Mad Libs. You can order them here. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!


Thanksgiving Roll A Story

I've created a fun Thanksgiving writing prompt. All you need is a die and a pencil. With each roll you'll choose your description, character, setting, and conflict. Then you'll get to plug them into a story. It will look something like this:

Once upon a time there was a (description) (character) who lived in a (place). More than anything he/she wanted (conflict). But (then you get to create why they can't achieve or obtain their want). So, (then tell how they were able to over come it).

Writing prompts are really fun and are an excellent way to help kids to start writing. I even included a place for them to draw a picture of their story. You can download it here.


Thanksgiving Mad Lib

One of the ways that I practice grammar is by using Mad Libs. It is a fun way to help my kids remember what all the different parts of speech are. I made a fun Thanksgiving Mad Lib for my monkeys and I would like to share it with you too!
