Lesson Plan - Get It!
Choose one of the Online Mad Libs For Kids and fill in the blanks to create a mad lib story.
After you fill in all the blanks, read your story out loud!
Hopefully, you enjoyed reading a funny, silly story!
In this lesson, you will develop your writing skills by practicing with mad lib thesis statements.
The thesis statement should capture the main idea of your essay. It should show your readers your position on the topic of the essay or what you intend to prove.
A strong thesis is essential because every paragraph in your essay should link back to this statement. Consider these four questions as a thesis test.
- Does your thesis inspire a reasonable reader to ask how or why?
- Does your thesis take a clear position on the topic?
- Does your thesis provide an idea of the examples or evidence you might use to support your position?
- Would your readers respond with, "So what?" or "Who cares?" If so, you need to revise to give them a reason to keep reading!
