Happy Day and a freebie to celebrate!

I am in an especially happy mood today because I found out that a good friend will be working in my building next year!  I am so glad that we will have her and all of her awesome talent!

One way I have found to help struggling readers in my classroom is to have a joke each week.  I have it hung by the door so they can see it when they line up.  I have it set so that they lift the flap to see the punchline.  This is good practice reading, but it is also an important comprehension skill.  It makes the children think about WHY the joke is funny!  All of my students look forward to each week's new joke.

So, I put some new ones together tonight, and I wanted to share them with you!  Click on the image below to go to the document.  Each joke is set to print on one page, but then you can just cut them apart and display as you wish!

Lots of laughs!!

Thanks! These 10 will give you s good start. Once you havethem printed and laminated, it is an easy thing to do each week. I get a lot of jokes off of Laffy Taffy and out of Highlights magazine.
