Jokes and riddles are a delightful way to develop children’s sense of humor as well as language standards. They can be used to reinforce double meanings of words, oral language, critical thinking, and questions and statements.

Riddle a Day
Write a riddle on the board each morning. Read over the riddle at circle time. Ask the children to smile if they “get” it. Encourage students explain the joke and “think out loud.”
*You could also let the children discuss the joke with a partner.

Riddle Books
Make riddle books for the students by folding paper in half and stapling. After reading the riddle each day, have them draw or write the answer in their books. Discuss their answers.

Joke Show and Tell
Have a “joke” show and tell. Ask each student to have their parents help them learn a joke at home. Use a play microphone to let them stand up and perform their joke for their classmates.
Every Day’s a Holiday
Introduce different holidays to your children and encourage them to explain what they think it means and how we can celebrate it. Kindness day, hug day, friend day, dictionary day, write a letter day, and dog biscuit day are just a few of the interesting days you can celebrate and use as a springboard for discussions.

Note!  Here are several websites where you can learn about a silly, random holiday for each day of the year.
