Limericks are such a fun form of poetry and have a unique rhyme scheme (rhyming pattern). This mentor poetry collection includes over 40 limerick exemplar poems with plenty of picture support to benefit all learners. These poems provide just the right models before students start writing their own limericks.
Whether you are looking for limericks to demonstrate different forms of poetry, or to add some reading and writing limerick fun to a St. Patrick's Day themed lesson, there are over 40 great exemplar poems here!
Also included is a mini-biography of Edward Lear, a nineteenth century poet who made limericks popular, and some guided practice worksheets to help students write their own limericks!
Have fun teaching limericks!
