Visual Supports for "Fill-in-the-Blank" Stories
A quick post today. For a fun activity with some of my students, I bought these Star Wars Mad Libs. To help provide a visual support for nouns and verbs, I printed a sheet for nouns and for verbs, along with pictures that represented each. The student could think of their own words to fill in the blanks in the story or choose a picture from the pages. Since we haven't worked a lot with nouns and verbs yet, I wanted to provide these visual examples of the words. As we work more on this topic, I'll fade out those prompts.
I would also make one of these sheets for adjectives if I did this activity again.
We had a lot of fun with this activity! What's great about these stories is that you can find them for many different student interests. Here are a few from Amazon.
