This limerick anthology and comprehension pack contains over 20 pages of original, child-friendly, and humorous limerick poems, alongside differentiated comprehension resources for beginner, intermediate, and expert limerick learners.
I made these resources when I was writing a limerick scheme of learning a while back - I was disappointed with the lack of age-appropriate limericks available (that were suitable for KS1 and KS2 children, and still met the structural requirements of the poetic form). Therefore I began designing this anthology - from fashion-loving crocodiles, to sun-bathing penguins, to crime-fighting fish, to geese with anger management issues, all of the limericks here have gone down really well with all of the children that I have taught.
The poems cover a wide range of animals, providing Science cross curricular opportunities to explore how some of these crazy animals differ from what children may normally expect to see!
The anthology contains a number of images, all of which are licensed for commercial use. Citations of these can be found on the final page of the anthology.
