A limerick is a well-known verse invented in Ireland about a hunded years ago. It is a short, funny poem that tells a little story.It has five lines. Lines 1,2,5 rhyme and usually have three beats. Lines 3,4 rhyme a nd often have two beats.

                              There was once a girl from Troy
                               She would always try to annoy
                               She looked like a moose
                               She laughed like a goose
                               Her silliness always caught a boy.

The rhyming pattern as you can see is:
These are some of the  limericks some of my students in 1st.D have written.

She was a girl from Alcorcón

She was eating pop-corn
She looked like an elephant
but she was elegant.
However, her tongue was very long.

Written by:Vanessa,Sara,Alvaro, Pedro.

There is a little girl from Spain
she always eats brains.
She looks like a witch
and she always has stitch.
But she likes singing in the rain.

Written by: Alberto. Itziar, Alejandro and Rubén.

My congratulations!

                                             FUNNY ANIMALS          

The crocodile cries in Canada and carries carrots to China.
The koala Knows how to make ketchup with kiwi.
Pipo, the penguin, paints pictures of pigs.
Great giraffes grow up in the grass.                 

The shark is smiling in the sea.
The lion lives in London and loves a lemur.
The platypus plays the piano in Pakistan
and the frog is fishing fishes with Frankenstein feeling futile.


Five foxes found fifteen frogs in the fish farm in February.
David´s dragon drives a dolphin in the dark desert during December.
Two camels camp with a camera in a camping site.
Willy the wolf is worried about the weather.
What is happening in the world?


The chameleon carries a car with the camel in Canada.
The turtle is talking to the tiger.
Monkeys listen to music like most mammals in Mercury and Mars
and the tiger is travelling to Toledo.

Polar parrots paralyse a pig in a party.
Spiders smile in September.
Poetic panthers pull pigs to parties.
Eight elephants are eating egss.

                       Tiny Tim
Tiny Tim thought tiny thought Tall Tim thought tall
    They thought till they teamed together
           Then they thought together
         Though Tiny Tim thought tiny
          Though Tall Tim thought tall.
              They thought till ten
            Then Tiny Tim thought tiny
           Though Tall Tim thought tall.
