Product Description
Malapropisms are a type of literary humor used both in Shakespeare's writing, as well as popular television shows such as "The Office." This is a fun activity I do with my students to help them begin to understand why malapropisms are funny. The worksheet has 6 examples of malapropisms. Students need to write down what the person meant to say, as well as what their malapropism actually said. It's a really fun, simple activity to do as a class or in small groups! It helps students build an understanding of easier malapropisms before identifying and explaining them in more complex texts.
