Our afterschool monthly Madlibs can get wild and wacky! We have a fantastic time playing games that push our imaginations. Our March Madlib was A Crazy Night at the Library. The story focused on what books might do and got us thinking about our favorite literary characters and settings. The prompts resulted in some creative and hilarious responses.
Here’s one of our favorite Madlibs from Shawn L. in grade 5.
A Crazy Night at the Library
One night something really funny (adjective) happened at the library. The characters in the stories started running (verb) from their books! Petros (character in a book) climbed into Charlotte’s Web and started jumping (verb) with Wilbur the Pig! Old Mario (character in a book) wandered into an encyclopedia and ended up lost in Greece (place)! The craziest part was when Zola (character in a book) wandered into War Games (your favorite book) and said, “ Wizard (pet’s name) I don’t think we’re in Europe (place)anymore.” Then Sharon (librarian) walked in and said, “ Philippines (exclamation)! Everybody back in place!” The characters ran (past tense verb) around the room. Whew, just in time! The students in 5th (your grade) grade came in to get books for their reports, but it was safe. All the characters were back in the books where they belonged.
