Are You a Lucky Limerick Writer? Enter Our 2017 Contest

Who writes limericks these days—a clever leprechaun, perhaps?

While we don’t know about leprechauns, we can tell you this: it’s time for Imagine Learning’s annual limerick contest, starring YOU—students from our partner schools across the country.

So, what is a limerick, anyway? Here’s an example:

You really don’t need to nitpick
when you write down your first limerick.
Just think of our theme,
Then, take time to dream.
Your rhyme’s sure to dazzle St. Patrick!

Now that you have a general idea of what a limerick is, watch The Limerick Song (below) to learn all the rules of limerick writing.

 

You can also view this video directly on Vimeo. Next–on to the rules! Read more »

Nick, the Limerick Maker

 

Hark, ye lasses and lads, it’s that time of year when leprechauns plan merry mischief in the green fields and woods.

It’s also time for Imagine Learning’s annual limerick contest. Here’s one to get you started:

Who loved to perform a neat trick:
He crafted a rhyme—
So fine; so sublime,
And called it his best limerick.
