Bored with typical lessons on homonyms and context clues? Try using Jokes of the Day instead! These jokes will add humor to your classroom, increase student understanding of language, and develop your students’ love of language.
Each day, I write one joke of the day on a specific spot on my board. Part of the students’ warm-up activity is to write down an answer for the Joke of the Day. This gives them practice in thinking about the multiple meanings of words.
When I am ready to begin class, I ask students to volunteer an answer to the Joke of the Day. Then, I provide students with a quick mini-lesson that may involve homonyms or spelling. This helps my class begin with a laugh and gets everyone engaged and interested. Students begin thinking about language in a new way.
This package provides you with one joke of the day for an entire nine week period.
