Inking Thoughts: Limerick

What do you notice?
  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: Create a Leprechaun limerick.
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, crayons
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Reading and Writing Connection: Limericks are a fun way to tell a tale. Encourage them to play with their word choice (rhyming words, silly words, made up wording). Remind them to do a silly sketch as part of the limerick story.
  • Drafting responses: Allow each family member to write their thoughts (10 min). Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe.
  • Finally: Discuss: Invite the family for a limerick tale evening. Start by sharing the Leprechaun limericks. Next have a silly limerick story time about a family “tale” (retelling as a limerick). Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting. Don’t forget the popcorn!
