Limericks, Words That Seem to do an Irish Jig!

The-Giants-Toe

Mentor Text - varied version of Jack and the Beanstalk

Writing workshop is always exciting due to the vast number of mentor texts available.  While I usually try to instill free verse to encourage the writing process, it is that time of year to introduce poetic form, rhyme, and rhythm.  For this lesson in writing LIMERICKS, I chose the book, The Giant’s Toe, by Brock Cole and limericks by Paul B. Janeczko.
