Limerick Poem Activity

Limerick Poems have 5 LINES with a set rhythm and rhyme pattern:
  • LINE 1: 3 stresses, rhyme A (setting up the “story” conflict)
  • LINE 2: 3 stresses, rhyme A (more information about the people
  • LINE 3: 2 stresses, rhyme B (here we read/hear the solution)
  • LINE 4: 2 stresses, rhyme B (how is this conflict/problem solved?)
  • LINE 5: 3 stresses, rhyme A (back to the beginning again)
Study the pattern in Example 1, then see if you can fill in the blanks in in Example 2
