Ascension 4th grade students are getting in the spirit for Saint Patrick's Day this weekend.  On Wednesday afternoon both classes visited the Ursuline Center for a combined lesson on Limericks, a popular and fun form of poetry.  The poems consist of 5 lines and are often short, funny, rhyme and have a bouncy rhythm.  Ms. Ford  taught the students the components of a Limerick and Mrs Douglass provided examples.  After, the students worked independently or with a partner to create their own Limerick.  It was an afternoon filled with creativity as well as quite a few giggles.
