  15. Drafting Continued… • Drafting = Putting your ideas on paper • Steps: • Form ideas from the graphic organizer into complete sentences. • Label this copy of limerick as draft. • Skip every other line when writing the limerick. (To help you remember to skip lines put an “x” on every other line.) • The point is to focus more on content instead of grammar, sentence structure, or spelling.

  16. Drafting Practice Activity • Teacher will model how to write a limerick for the students using four easy steps, and the class graphic organizer from the prewriting stage.

  17. Practice Activity Continued… 1. Choose an animal name, boy or girl, from the graphic organizer, and fill in the blank for the first line. • There once was an animal named (insert name) • Example: There once was an animal named Dudley, 2. Then you think of something the subject would do, and start the sentence with that or who. (The last word must rhyme with the last word of the first line.) • Example: Who was very cute and cuddly.

  18. Practice Activity Continued… 3. Next you decide if the animal is a boy/girl, think of a cause, and then effect for the third and fourth lines. • Remember the rhyme scheme: AA,BB,A (so the rhyme changes on the third/fourth lines) • Example: he wasn’t house trained, and some tempers were strained, 4. The last line is the end result of your limerick, and the last word rhymes with the last words of the first and second lines. • Example: His fail was the that he was way too puddly.
