100 Laughs for Learners: A Compilation of Jokes for Elementary Aged Kids  by Amanda Schaumburg

This is not your average joke book for kids. This book turns laughter into learning! This book was written by an educator who has worked in public and private schools since 2009. It is a compilation of some of the BEST kid-friendly jokes out there!

Use the jokes in this book:

  • to break the ice with students

  • as a warm-up to vocabulary or literacy lessons

  • to add some laughter to the day

This book is unique because each joke is presented with the question and punchline on different pages with pictures, allowing the child to guess the answer. The pictures add a hilarious touch and provide visual support for children who need it.

Did you know almost all jokes contain figurative language and vocabulary concepts (idioms, homophones/homonyms, puns, synonyms, parts of speech, personification, onomatopoeia, etc.) that can be used as a learning tool? This book breaks down some of these learning concepts plus adds a brain challenge for each joke. Who knew jokes could be so educational? You will find this information at the bottom of the punchline pages. The brain challenges target compare/contrast, describing/defining, categories, antonyms/synonyms, and more. Many of the pictures show a cross between the literal and figurative meanings of the jokes (guaranteed to bring a smile to the reader’s face).

Don’t want to use jokes for learning? That’s OK! You can use this book just for the laughs too! They are guaranteed to induce giggles either way!

Joke categories: food, animals, transportation, school, weather, sports, furniture/home, clothing, and dinosaurs (each category has 7-12 jokes), along with 5 random BONUS jokes.
