Tuesday, May 12th was National Limerick Day. Students in 4th Grade celebrated this by writing limericks about super heroes. First, they had a lesson on what a limerick poem is and the mechanics of writing one.
Students worked diligently on their limericks and drew a picture of their super hero. Then, they used the iPad app "Chatterpix" to make their pictures talk, and used the app "iMovie" to put them all together.
