I needed some help with my titles, so I asked the boys to make some exquisite corpses with me. To make it easier and more fun for them, I had them think of as many words as they could and separated them into three categories: adjectives, nouns and verbs.

We glued our found words onto three containers--adjectives on one, nouns on another, and verbs on the third, and added all of our cut-up words to the correct containers:

The rules of the game: Take turns choosing an adjective, noun, verb, adjective and noun. Write your words down, adding definite articles and prepositions when necessary.
Our exquisite corpses:
- The yellow poop danced with the furry celery.
- The nice window ran to the hungry door.
- The good newspaper shoved the bloody drawer.
- The content gelato tagged the bloody Russian masters.
- The crazy goldfish feasted on the loud butterfly.
- The strong underwear did a somersault over the special friend.
- The big celery fed the clean lunchbox.
- The excited crayon jumped on the scary tiger.
- The hungry diaper whined at the green bell.
- The soggy elephant danced with the harmful pea.
- The excited trumpet ate the wet door.
- The squishy monster farted on the bloody banana.
- The hungry baby did a somersault over the excited elephant.
