Laughing At Limericks - FREE Limerick Writing Activity!

Top o'the day to you all!  It's March and I'm tenuously holding on to some small Irish heritage as an excuse to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.  I don't spend a lot of time on holiday related writing, but when I can, I do incorporate it into our day.

Limericks are fun and silly and appeal to just about every grade level.  I know that my Grade 8s have had a blast with these in the past... their imaginations and sense of humour are awesome!  However, I also know that some of them have struggled to come up with a limerick of their own and I've heard the familiar whine... "I don't know what to write about..." too many times!  So I created a set of "recipes" to help students write their own limericks.  They're easy to use and appeal to a wide range of ages and abilities.

Have fun and let the silliness begin!  Click on the image below to download your FREE copy.
