Today is 12th May – National Limerick Day

Limericks, like all types of poems have a set of rules that you need to follow. The rules for a limerick are fairly simple:
 They are five lines long.
 Lines 1, 2, and 5 rhyme with one another.
 Lines 3 and 4 rhyme with each other.

They have a distinctive rhythm (Lines 1, 2 and 5 have the same rhythm as each other) – (lines 3 and 4 have matching rhythms)
They are usually funny.

Limericks Take Practice
I know that writing limericks is going to seem hard at first because it’s sometimes difficult to get the rhythm, the rhymes, and the joke to all work together. But don’t worry; with a little practice, you’ll soon be creating funny limericks of your own that will make your friends and family laugh. Have fun!

Share your limerick on your Google Classroom or Twitter
