Review adjectives, nouns, and verbs using this fill-in-the-blank grammar activity that will have your students laughing (or at least giggling) while they review grammar concepts. This fill-in-the-blank game allows your students to focus on a few key parts of speech: nouns (including proper nouns, common nouns), action verbs, and adjectives.

Fill-in-the-blank grammar games have never gone out of style, and even high school students aren't too old for them. It's a great way to review basic parts of speech and bring a little laughter into students' lives. Grammar concepts will sink deeper into their understanding if they are having fun!

Included are two different fill-in-the-blank stories. Each one has between 15-17 blanks for students to work with a partner to fill out. I have included a virtual as well as a printable version. If students are remote, they can still do the activity if you pair them up in breakout rooms.

Use this at the beginning of the year to determine students' recall of basic parts of speech. This can also be great for ESL students who need a little extra practice with basic parts of speech.

Have some fun and review grammar basics at the same time!
