Monday Motivation – “Ain’t” Ain’t a Word

We’ve reached the end of our Spring Break-Away month, and the student entries have been full of fun and excellent rule breaking.  To cap off the month’s activities, try one last challenge that bucks the grammar grouches…

Write a piece using the maximum number of contractions (can’t, don’t, mustn’t, etc.)  As a bonus, try to include a few that add a rhyming element to the end of your lines.

Post your piece in the comment section below, or link to your website where it is posted.  Be sure to visit other Rhymers and leave encouraging comments, and remember to share this site with your friends on FaceBook, Twitter, or elsewhere.  See why we have a Reason 2 Rhyme!
