Celebrate St. Patrick's Day while also polishing your students' analysis and writing skills! This fun activity also aligns with the Common Core State Standards. Students visit four Limerick Analysis Stations around your classroom analyzing rhyme scheme, rhythm, tone and mood, and content. After visiting the four stations, students write their own limerick using the provided Limerick Writing Checklist and student worksheet.
A bonus concrete poetry worksheet is also included so students can try a different form of poetry in the St. Patrick's Day theme!
Everything you need for a fun St. Patrick's Day activity is included in this 10 page download! Teacher directions are included.
