Joke Books


Who says, “Oh, oh, oh?”

Santa Claus walking backwards!


At a reading conference last year, I learned that having kids read joke books really helps kids with fluency and expression. The reason for this is that they will read the same jokes over and over. By re-reading the same things over and over, the kids get better at reading. They will naturally add more expression and have better fluency. You may get tired of hearing the same jokes, but you can be assured that it’s helping the kids read!

Best Christmas Jokes by Melvin Berger is a great joke book for kids in first or second grade to read in December.
