Thursday is St. Patrick's Day. To get your students in the Irish spirit, we've created a fun little song about writing limericks featuring Nick from the Imagine Learning English software. Nick's song makes a perfect lesson plan to teach your students about writing limericks (the lyrics are below for your reference). To view the video, please install Microsoft Silverlight. Watch the video on YouTube here. And to get you in the Irish spirit, we'd like to have you participate in a limerick contest!  Write your own limerick in the comments section below.  The writer of our favorite limerick will receive a $20 gift card to Target! We'll accept submissions through end-of-day Friday, March 18th. Special consideration will be given to limericks with an educational flavor. Good luck (o' the Irish) to everyone! LIMERICK SONG LYRICS Hello! How are you? I’m Nick. Here to teach you a fun little trick. To have a good time when writing a rhyme try writing your own limerick! There are limericks of all different kinds. So how do you write one that shines? You’ll see that it’s cool if you follow the rule: a limerick is made of five lines. So listen close to this song. Lines one, two and five are all long. And in poems of this sort make lines three and four short and I promise you’ll never go wrong. You need to be sure and contrive to rhyme lines one, two, and five Then do it once more with lines three and four and your limerick surely will thrive! So let these pointers take hold And if you’ll write as you were told at the rainbow’s end you’ll find there my friend your own limerick pot ‘o gold!

LIMERICK SONG LYRICS

Hello! How are you? I’m Nick. Here to teach you a fun little trick. To have a good time when writing a rhyme try writing your own limerick!

There are limericks of all different kinds. So how do you write one that shines? You’ll see that it’s cool if you follow the rule: a limerick is made of five lines.

So listen close to this song. Lines one, two and five are all long. And in poems of this sort make lines three and four short and I promise you’ll never go wrong.

You need to be sure and contrive to rhyme lines one, two, and five Then do it once more with lines three and four and your limerick surely will thrive!

So let these pointers take hold And if you’ll write as you were told at the rainbow’s end you’ll find there my friend your own limerick pot ‘o gold!

Hello, It was sheer pleasure to go through your blog. It is clean, minimalistic, yet to the point. I have recently launched specsaddict.com, the first online eyewear store of Middle-East. I left my high profile job as Head of EMEA for Citibank to venture on my own. The inspiration was to make eyewear more affordable to people across the region. I would love to see if there are any opportunities to collaborate with you. Look forward to hearing back from you.
