Good examples of rhyming couplets?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by vegaslady, Oct 28, 2007.

  1. Hi all,
    the title says it all really. Does anyone have any good examples of simple rhyming couplets that I can share with the whole class? I could write my own but Lit isn't my strong point!
    TIA,
    Vegas

  3. I remember doing this and using humpty dumpty we then changed the words to make our own

    Humpty dumpty sat on a wall
    Humpty dumpty had a great fall

    Humpty dumpty drove a car
    humpty dumpty drove so far

    can't remember any others, it was quite a while ago!
