How to Tell a Joke ***NEW***

Telling a joke to a group of people is a real art - and no-one ever teaches us how to do it! These worksheets explore some key aspects of joke telling and they can be great fun in any middle classroom.

I suggest setting the ground rules with the class right at the beginning so that any inappropriate material is not used as a joke… but that never really happened in any of the lessons that I conducted with my students, so hopefully it is a non-issue for your class as well.

This pack includes 12 pages of worksheets plus an answer key showing some suggested answers to the questions about jokes.

Headings in the pack include:
- Defining a joke
- Putting on your humor hat
- What is the best joke you have ever heard?
- Know your audience
- Joke types
- How to write your own joke
- How to deliver a joke

I really enjoy working with humor in my classes and I have about a dozen packs of worksheets that worked in my class in my TES store.


I’d be really disappointed if anyone is not happy with these packs, so if that’s you, please get back to me and your money will be very happily refunded. I’d really like some feedback too, so all comments most welcome.
