Get ready to unleash the inner poet in your students! There’s no better time to start than now, and no better way to begin than by providing them with easy-to-access resources to help them learn the art of writing poetry, beginning with the whimsical and fun limerick. With the right tools and guidance, your students will be rhyming and rhythmically expressing their thoughts in no time. With a predictable format and a standard syllable pattern for each line, the limerick will quickly become your students’ favorite type of poetry to compose.
