Leprechauns and Limericks

Room 100 is beginning the season with limericks, a style of poetry popularized by Edward Lear in the 19th century. Limericks aren't Irish, but there is a Limerick county in Ireland where limericks gain fame. These nonsensical poems are a fun way for students to celebrate the season.
A clever song about how to write limericks, sung in limericks, guides students through the steps of writing a great limerick.
Little leprechauns motivated students to write!    


We combined writing and crafting in this fun activity for St. Patrick's Day. 

The mischevious fun has begun!
What WILL Monday bring?

Thanks, Cindy, @ Primary Reading Party for this clever leprechaun pattern!
