Understanding humor can help students:
improve reading and listening comprehension skills
build their vocabulary by learning new words and meanings
strengthen their memory skills by sharing jokes with others
develop an appreciation for reading-- especially joke books
Your students will be giggling as they read and solve each task card.
Learning + Laughing = a joyful classroom
Exposure to jokes can increase students' ability to understand and enjoy humor. This is an important language and social skill. Who doesn't enjoy telling and hearing jokes?! Your students will be so engaged and entertained, they may not even notice they are learning!
The task cards can be printed in color or grayscale and can be laminated and used again and again. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.
The answer key is typed into 2 “task cards.” This makes it easy to leave in the center for self-checking and for task card storage.
Keep the answers with the task cards!
