Literary Sherri is Getting Nerdy: The Dawn of Nerd Libs

In my home, we're commemorating St. Nicholas Day today by making homemade hot cocoa and watching "The Polar Express" based on Chris Van Allsburg's beautiful book! By the way, this year marks the 25th anniversary of this book -- it's officially a classic! Click on the image below to visit the author's web page:
On a totally separate note . . . it's no secret that I'm a big fan of Getting Nerdy with Mel and Gerdy -- the science teachers I wish I had! And I'm over-the-moon about their Saturday Nerd Libs weekly link-up! (My wedding RSVPs were mad-lib style, so I especially adore this idea and its nod to literacy!)
So without further ado, here's my first Saturday mad-lib . . .

Incidentally, my vehicle is nicknamed Chitty Chitty Bang Bang because I have a penchant for flying (otherwise known as a lead foot).
Here's a photo of the mad-lib-style RSVPs for my wedding . . .

And here's a photo of my year-old kitten, Frodo, who acquired his name because he is unusually small but has huge eyes and huge feet, and he's very brave and adventurous!
Read mad-libs from other Teacher-Bloggers at the link-up on Mel and Gerdy's blog -- you may discover a favorite new blogger!

Leave me a comment and let me know how you and your family celebrate St. Nicholas Day . . . or leave me a link to your Saturday mad-lib!

Happy December!


  1. Now I am singing "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" songs! Such a great movie! Do you really have a kitten named Frodo? I love that! Love kittens and Lord of the Rings!

    1. I really do have a kitten named Frodo! I edited the post to include a photo of him! The name fits him perfectly -- and I love all things with a literary connection! :)

  2. I love chitty chitty bang bang And the image of you flying down the road!

    1. I took a cross-country road-trip a couple of weeks ago and I was so surprised to see an interstate speed limit of 75 in some states. (It's 65 in my state.) The faster pace suited me perfectly! :)

  3. I am soooo allergic to cats, but that one is cute!

    As I read these, it seems that the "coffee" is a theme amongst us teachers...
