Have you heard any good jokes lately?
If you spend any amount of time around kids you’ve probably heard the classics and more than a handful of punchlines that don’t even make sense. Joke books are definitely funny, but there are a lot of other great reasons to share them with your students.
•They are interactive, which keeps kids engaged.
• Since jokes are short, they can help fill up those extra minutes that appear when you finish a lesson early or have to wait a few extra minutes for specials.
• They can motivate and build confidence in your reluctant readers.
• Kids can practice fluency while learning how to deliver the punchline.
• Jokes often play with words. This means you can work on language (vocabulary, parts of speech, multiple meaning words, etc.) in a fun way.
• They can build classroom community and help reset the tone when kids are having an off day.
• Joke books can create lifelong readers!
I have been on the lookout for joke books that my kids will enjoy. Here are just a few that we recently found. Let me know if you have any other joke books you’d recommend!

I'm very proud of my book collection, but I don't think I've reached library status...yet! 😉Pretty much. I just opened a store instead. 😁 ... See MoreSee Less
Look! I Wrote a Book! (And You Can Too!) by Sally Lloyd-Jones and Neal Layton follows a young author as she sets out to write a book. Along the way, she will keep your readers giggling as she shares the ins and outs of the writing process.
This book would be a great mentor text for your writing workshop. It shares information about finding ideas, knowing your audience, the parts of a story, how to receive feedback, making revisions, and publishing your writing. These could easily be used to guide your writing mini lessons. While the pictures and text will draw in your young authors, I think older students might enjoy this book as a way to review the writing process.
Have you read this book yet?

You know I love to share MY favorite picture books with you, but now it’s your turn. What is an amazing picture book you have read recently? Hopefully I can add some new titles to my list for our next library (or bookstore) trip!
