We love limericks! Here is a sampling of the many, many limericks the students have written this week. In addition to following the rhyme pattern and the rhythm pattern, I encouraged them to create their own nonce word or portmanteau in at least one limerick.
I once made a very good pizza
I shared it with the King of Wizza
He loved it so much
that he ate it for lunch
Then took me to the Tower of Pisa.
I once lived in a red castle
Where my servents were always a hassle
When I said, “stop!”
They always said “not.”
So I sent them all out of my castle.
There once was a cat named Moose.
He acted much more like a goose.
He honked all day
and the neighbors would say,
“They shouldn’t have named that cat Moose!”
There once was a fish named Merlin
He had a friend named Swirlin
They played all day,
and their mothers would say,
“That silly Merlin and Swirlin!”
