Students will work independently, in pairs or in groups to write a holiday or winter limerick. Each of the lines of a limerick poem is carefully defined and laid out for the students to write one at a time. Following an example, students come up with their own subject for the limerick and create rhyming words along the way, bringing it all together in the end. Could be given as a homework assignment or as a class/center activity. Completed limericks can be typed, illustrated and displayed for the holidays or winter!
