Review: Mad Libs
Excellent and hilariously funny word game. Laugh while learning about verbs, nouns, adjectives and creating silly stories!
View on the App Store: Mad Libs - Penguin Group USA
Features of Mad Libs:
21 Mad Libs stories are given FREE in this excellently designed and produced App with many more purchase possibilities.
A minimum of 2 people are required to play this game the way it was intended, but doing it as a family or a group is so much fun!
Choose a story from the selection of 21. Do not show it to your partner/the others, so they have NO IDEA what it is about.
On your screen there will be space to fill in your partners chosen words. You will not see the full story only the blanks making it fun for the reader too.
Example: 'Noun' - ask for a noun of your partners choice and then type it into the space. Hints are available if required by clicking on the top right corner of the screen.
There are around 18 'blanks' per story, they include: verbs, adverbs, nouns, adjectives, parts of the body, silly words, numbers, colours, places and plurals.
Once your partner has chosen all the words the interim screen appears giving you the option to choose a photo from your library or to take one.
Click DONE then your story appears. Read it aloud for hilarity and fun!
Story subjects in this app include The Roar of the Crowd, Street Beat, How to clean your Computer, Kitchen Inspection, Camp-fire Stories, Bowling and A Night at the Carnival.
You can purchase other sets of 21 specific story types in app purchases.
10 out of 10!
If you have not played this word game before I recommend looking at the instructions. Also included is a reminder an description of each of the TYPES of words you will be asked for, you could go over this information together before you begin.
When the story is complete and you are reading it you can see the words you choose and which type of words they were underneath. If the story does not read correctly it is because the incorrect type of word was chosen, this is an excellent way for a child to learn!
