PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This worksheet is a perfect starter activity for grades 3-5 or intermediate English students learning rhyming.

Here's a suggested lesson plan:

1. Present sample limerick
There was an Old Man in a boat,
Who said, 'I'm afloat, I'm afloat!'
When they said, 'No! you ain't!'
He was ready to faint,
That unhappy Old Man in a boat.
- Edward Lear

2. Complete worksheet
There was an old man with a beard
Who said, "it's just how I had [feared]!"
Two owls and a [hen]
Four larks and a [wren]
Have all built their nests in my [beard].

3. Investigate limerick structure
Limerick rules:
- 5 lines
- Lines 1, 2, 5 rhyme with each other, with the same verbal rhythm
- Lines 3, 4 rhyme with each other, with the same verbal rhythm
- Usually humorous

4. Students create their own limerick
- Starter examples: There once was a girl from New York… There once was an old man named Tom…
