Included: a poster, a "My Limerick" sheet for students to write their own limericks, and twenty-four cards.
Each card has the first line of a limerick written on it.
These cards can be used as task cards and/or in centers. Students can simply finish the limerick on the "My Limerick" sheet.
Students can also use the cards to play a game with a partner, a small group, or as a whole class. Each student gets a copy of the "My Limerick" sheet and one card. They write the first line on the sheet and add a second line. When the teacher gives a cue, the students pass their sheets to the person next to them (or behind them, in front of them, etc.). That person then add a third line. The paper will be passed until all five lines are completed. Have students share these funny poems with the class.
Laminate cards for long term use!
