Radlibs is a great icebreaker to get students laughing on the first day of class. This worksheet can be used as a refresher for parts of speech, or as a short get to know you activity. In this free download you have access to one of my back to school Radlibs, in which students work in pairs, with one student filling in the spaces based on their partner’s responses. In order to get the most from this activity, make sure to pair students up and designate a reader/recorder and a speaker as part of the set up. Once you have done this, explain that only the recorder/reader can look at the paper. They will ask their partner for a word to fill in each black space without reading any of the story out loud. As their partner gives responses they should record these words on the worksheet. When they have finished the entire story, the reader can read the wacky story out loud to their partner. Teachers may want to do a quick refresher on parts of speech depending on student level.
