A Joke-A-Day

For The Classroom

By Brandi Jordan, Managing Editor Of The Teachers Lounge, A Really Good Stuff Blog
A Joke-A-Day:
200 Kid-Friendly Jokes For The Classroom
Happy, smiling children make for eager, engaged learners. With the myriad of
testing and assessments that take place throughout the school year, it is nice to
have a moment each day to make kids smile. Whether you start the morning off
with a joke or fit it in between math and reading lessons, a kid-friendly joke, tongue
twister, or riddle helps lighten the mood and gets your students thinking outside
the box.

Jokes and riddles offer a great segue into multiple word meanings, homophones,
language manipulation, alliteration, and more. Need a new way to grab your ESL/
ELL students attention? Try telling them a joke. Want to challenge your students to
use language in different ways? Ask them to write jokes and riddles. The inherent
fun factor of jokes makes them an easy sell and much less intimidating than
asking students to write a paragraph.

If you think writing a joke is easy, think again. It requires students to

not only understand the way words are put together, but encourages
them to expand their vocabulary. With a strong emphasis in the
Common Core State Standards on vocabulary, writing and telling
jokes is the perfect, kid-friendly way to meet those standards.

The 200 kid-friendly jokes in this book are great for classroom (or
home) use. Encourage students to create a joke a day for your
classroom and create a book that they can take home at the end
of the year. Inspiration, humor, and kid-friendly fun are a sure-fire
recipe for student success.
