I thought I would share this activity that I always had my students do on Halloween day. A Halloween Limerick Activity! This activity, perfect for grades 5 and up, has students writing their own epigraph in limerick form, then putting it on their own tombstone. It is a great way for the kids to have fun while learning a new poetic style!

Have fun and let us know how it goes!
