Book of the Week: Wacky Weather and Silly Season Jokes

Educators often ask me which of my books would work best in their classroom. So this year, I’ve decided to feature a book each week and highlight related teaching materials and strategies.

Don’t be fooled by the title. Wacky Weather and Silly Season Jokes is more than just a book of jokes. It also contains basic information about rain, snow, frog, frost, dew, hail, sleet, clouds, thunderstorms, hurricanes, seasons, climate, and , and more.

And that’s not all. The backmatter includes a 6-page section about how to write jokes using a wide range of language devices, including alliteration, homographs and homophones, and rhyme. There’s no better way to get students to engaging in authentic word play.
