    I want to print out Madlibs so my students can fill in the blanks.
    We don't have access to the internet in school. Any idea where I can find these to print out from the web?

    Hi to those who responded. That's not what I need. I too found those but I have to supply the noun, adjective, etc. then it creates a story. I don't have time for that. I wanted a printable version, where the story is there with blank lines and under the lines it says to fill in a noun, adj. etc.

    That is what I want to print off. Just like as if I bought the book and did it myself. Isn't there some where on the web where it is already created except for the missing words for you to fill in?

    I guess not cuz I tried last night & came up with nothing.

    Best bet is to buy the books I think. I tried looking for some online and couldn't get what I wanted. I found them at a local Michael's in 2 packs for $3.99.

    I think the reason one doesn't find MadLibs on the Internet is that Price and Stern (the guys who invented MadLibs) have trademarked the concept and copyrighted every MadLib they've developed. Wish I could come up with something that clever...

    Madlibs books can be found on Scholastic book orders. You can even order them online.

    The books, yes (and they also tend to be in the children's sections of Barnes & Noble and/or Borders)... but I think cat5445 was asking for individual MadLibs online.

    Yes, I was and found just a few. I assumed there would be more. Darn.

    It's actually fun to take text that the students know well - something historical, maybe, or perhaps a particularly stodgy paragraph from a particularly stodgy textbook - and MadLib that. Type it or find it online, label the part of speech of selected words, replace those words with underlines, and you're good to go. In fact, it just struck me that it could be a terrific exercise to have each student make a MadLib...

    I have taken the Mad Lib books and had a parent blow it up on a copier. It was the perfect size. I found a lot of cheap ones (under $1) at Book Warehouse in Branson, Mo.
