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.
