Homeschool Resource for Language Arts.

Today I would like to bring you a new Homeschool Resource for Language Arts. And it is Wacky Web Tales. And it is a lot like Mad Libs which I loved doing as a child. And so did my nephew, brother, sister and Suzzane. So I think Charlie would like it a lot as well.

And I can even see David doing this site with us. And since David isn’t always sure what nouns and adverbs and the different parts of speech is it would allow both Charlie and David to practice and learn them together. And it might get David more involved in Charlies school work. And to give me a break.

Recommended Website:
Age Range: 7-12 (Grades 3-8 – and fun for all! – with parental supervision)
Houghton Mifflin (the education textbook publisher) sponsors this website that helps kids learn parts of speech – nouns, adverbs, adjectives, verbs, etc. Using interactive stories called “Wacky Web Tales” they offer an online version of the classic car game, Mad Libs.
When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of Wacky Web Tales titles. Click on any one and a new page opens that reveals the story title and a form. The form requires you to type in parts of speech (such as a singular noun, adjective, or present tense verb). The words you enter will be used to create a Wacky Web Tale — simply click on the “See Your Wacky Web Tale” button at the bottom of the form.

If you are unsure what an adverb (or any other part of speech called for on the form) is – just click on the “Parts of Speech Help” button for some quick definitions.

Because you don’t know how the parts of speech you filled in on the form will be used in the story – the resulting Wacky Web Tale can be pretty funny!

This is a painless way to learn, reinforce, or remediate parts of speech.

As I sat down today to do some work with Charlie I mentioned Wacky Web tales to David. And David asked me if I would pull up the website so he could see how it worked. So I did and we took a look around. And as soon as I mentioned Big Foot David was like yes, lets do that today as Charlie would love it. And I agreed with him.
So I hope you take the time to check out Wacky Web Tales and if you have used it in the past Please let me know what you thought of it. And if not but you would like to use it in the future Please let me know why.
Thank you,
Glenda, Charlie and David Cates
