Start with a Joke!

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: A Visitor

It's always good to start off the school day on the right note. So why not start it off in a fun manner?

Telling jokes at the beginning of the school day will get your students out of the "morning look" and into a learning mode.

Just read a couple jokes each morning and even at the end of the school day, or maybe even if you have time to spare. Believe me, the kids will really enjoy it!

The children could also share any jokes that they know.


Mrs L has suggested this variation... I did this many years ago and had a little gauge on the wall going from 'GROAN' to 'HA HA BONK!', and would rate each day's joke. I also went through the register so every child had a turn at providing the joke of the day, always having enough warning to prepare one. Other children were always ready to step in if necessary!
