Limericks – Julia

We have been working on poetry for a few weeks. I am going to share some limericks that we did. A limerick has to have 5 lines, the scheme has to be AABBA. That means the first 2 lines rhyme, the 3rd and 4th lines are shorter and rhyme with each other but not the first and second lines then the 5th line rhymes with the first 2 lines. A limerick is also meant to tell a funny story which makes it interesting and funny.

There was once a man

That was always next to a fan

He went away

To the bay

And and  the man came with a new fan
