The challenge this time? Write a limerick on some topic related to December. Your limerick could be about the rainy weather, about the chill in the air, about Christmas, about getting out of school on the eighteenth, et cetera.
The choice of topics is yours, but the structure for the limerick is not. If you’re not sure about the rules for limericks, please visit Poetry4Kids at this link right here.
When you've revised and edited your submission, save it as Gauntlet 4 [Insert Your Name Here]. For example, my file would be named Gauntlet 4 Mr Chance. Before Friday, 11 December, email your response to the challenge to mchance at theregisschool dot org.
P.S. Shown in the picture above is an illustration and limerick, both by Edward Lear, the King of Limericks.
