What do cats do when they join a monastery? They take a "meow" of silence.
What does a cavewoman wear when she gets chilly? A neander-shawl.
Why did the shirt go to the doctor? It was feeling 'blousy.'
What do germs use to get rid of bad breath? Micro-scope.
While these are not complicated jokes, per se, my first grader is not familiar with the term 'vow of silence', probably has never used the terms blouse and shawl, and probably hasn't heard the word Neanderthal. My third grader is at a much higher reading level, but even she is not familiar enough with monastic practices to get the first one, and while I know she knows the term shawl, I'm much less sure that anyone has used the term blouse to her. Both of them use mouthwash, but we've never used the brand scope and we use it with them to prevent cavities and I've never mentioned it being for bad breath -- that joke would leave them completely nonplussed.
There are also jokes which depend upon pop-culture references like Will Smith or Scuby Doo. We read all the time at our house and talk about a wide variety of subjects, but I am sure my children are not familiar with either these icons.
You might object that these jokes can be explained to them and be a learning experience. This is true.Read more ›

These were a big hit with my 4th grade students this year. I would pick a few students to give these to every so often, more so during the beginning of the year. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Petrina W.

These are really cute little riddles to put into lunch boxes. We love them! They fold in half so the answer is hidden and I can write a little note inside or on the back.Published 8 months ago by Momoftwo
I'm so happy with these! The jokes are super corny and fun for elementary aged kids. I sort through and pick which one goes in my 2nd grader's lunch or my 6th grader's. Read morePublished 10 months ago by CPO
