Reflection: Poetry: Writing Limericks - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


A Limerick is often about a person and begins with, “There once was a …” It should also tell a story about that person. For students that struggle with this, help them brainstorm people or characters that they can write about and ask them to think of a little story to tell about them. Once they have that idea in mind, they can work on thinking of rhyming words to follow the AABBA pattern.
