Helpful tips for making Joke of the Day an effective tool in your classroom

HOW TO IMPLEMENT:
Write the joke on your white board. As you are writing, model (think aloud) for your students the spelling, writing, or phonics concepts that you are currently working on.

Writing Concept Examples: Letter Formation, Spacing, Punctuation, or Capitalization

Spelling Concept Examples: “Oh that word is in the “ight” family” or “That’s a sight word we know.”

Phonics Concept Examples: “Let’s see I want to write the word shop. What sounds do I hear? /sh/ /o/ /p/. What sound says /sh/? Oh that’s right, sh!” or “What letters work together to say /ing/?”


1. Read/Say the joke aloud as you are writing it.
2. Then, read it again while pointing to each word.
3. Then, call on students for answers.
4. Finally, reread the joke again together and tell the answer. I have found that it isn’t necessary to write the answer on the board, but for older students analyzing the play on words it may be helpful. You could also have older students write the joke and answer in their own joke book at some point during the day.
