Fill-in-the-Blanks activities can look different depending on how long of a blank you are expecting students to fill. With a grammar focus, you could have students choose the correct verb, conjugation, preposition, adjective ending, etc. 


You could also have students read a paragraph and change the verb tense for every missing verb. You simply type the sentences and bracket off ([ ]) the words or phrases you want to be blanked out on the student side. 

Our system will recognize that whatever is in the bracket should not be visible and needs to be filled in correctly. 


Fill-in-the-Blanks activities are great with music, having students listen and fill in the missing word or phrase. Same with pictures. Students could look at an image and fill in the blank with specific information of what they see in the picture to review vocabulary. 

Lastly, students could watch a video and change the incorrect information or find the mistake.

Fill-in-the-Blanks are great activities for different uses, but it is important to remind students that they must type everything correctly to get full credit. They need to be careful with spelling and capitalization since the activities are auto-graded. As the teacher, you can always alter the activity or change the grade if it is necessary to give points back or add feedback on the student's performance.
