Product Description
Writing limericks can be fun, easy and lots of laughs! It’s a perfect tool for ushering in spring, or staring a fresh new unit.


Use these brain based guidelines to help students read aloud samples and then create their own limericks to give smaller children or friends.

Discover the fun of starting simply, and the delight of reading silly themes such as a limerick titled, “There once was a brain that escaped.”

Other samples here include two additional limericks titled, “There once was a boy named Hendrik,” and “There once was a girl named Frankie’ As students read aloud samples provided they then write similar beats and rhyme patterns in their work.

Students are helped to recognize how last words in the first two lines rhyme and both the first and second lines contain 3 beats, and then prompted to read their own lines aloud.

Learners especially enjoy learning how to start a silly story, and write their own limericks on pages provided. Enjoy, the 10 suggested uses here for students final limericks!

Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.

Do follow my TpT site and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
