PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your kiddos who have figurative language goals explain why a joke is funny with this helpful visual! Have your kids find the related words in a joke and its punchline, then brainstorm those words' multiple meanings to find out why the joke is funny! This is best to use with jokes that use a play-on-words, but I've found it helpful to use with idioms and metaphors as well.

This is also really good for the kids who get stuck on literal meanings. Once they make a list of the related words' multiple meanings, cross out the ones that don't make sense so they can't get "stuck" on them!
