Telling Jokes in Speech: Why I love it & some ideas!

Do you tell jokes in speech?  Have you tried to tell your speech and language students a joke and they give you weird looks?!  How about they laugh but you can tell that they just do not get it?!

Jokes require understanding of so much  language!  Multiple meaning words, figurative language, and more confusing things.  How are some ways to introduce jokes to work on language skills:

  • Joke of the week:  I have taken jokes that I have found that goes with theme vocabulary or just cute/funny, and posted them on my dry erase board.  Each week, students can come in and see the joke and learn what makes it funny.  This way they can retell the joke to their peers and family.
  • While waiting for students to arrive in the speech room, I have taken out my joke books and let the kids try and find funny ones to tell each other.  Then we dissected them to explain how they are funny.
Where do I find jokes??

and some free apps for jokes:

Jokes are also just a fun way to work on fluency or articulation!!  Check out these products I found on TpT:

Do you use jokes??  How?!

Chicken Soup for the SLP Soul (Blog Hop!)

I am so excited to participate in this fun blog hop.  I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series (and actually use the teen/preteen versions often in my therapy room).

I am SO honored to be the very first stop!!  As you hop along, you will read so many inspiring, funny, and just motivating stories about SLPs just like  yourself.  We all love the field we are in and that is why we decided to do this type of blog hop and posts around Valentine's Day!!  Also..who doesn't love a nice warm bowl of soup in the middle of the winter?!  Check out the awesome prizes you could win!!

For my stop on this hop, I am going to share an "ah-ha!" moment in my years of practicing as an SLP.

My first few years, I thought I had to prove myself as an SLP and prove that I knew what I was doing.  I feared asking for help, feared looking like I was lost and unsure, and I was convinced that I really did just know everything about everything.  Hey...I went thought the graduate program, passed my praxis, why wouldn't I just know everything?!

At some point, in my 5th year ( took that long)...I realized that it was OK to admit that I do not know all of the answers, it is OK to ask for help, and this is NORMAL!  I realized SLPs around me that have been in the field longer than me were asking questions and getting feedback.  I realized there were so many ways to get ideas and feedback.

At this point in my career, I realized I need to make yearly goals for myself.  I still have room to grow and learn and I want to make myself accountable.  I am constantly looking for new ways to target goals, going to workshops to learn more about disorders that I am not fully confident in, and I am learning who I can turn to in my building/field if I have questions about decisions on goals/mandates/behavior management/dealing with colleagues/etc.

This "ah-ha" moment was SEVERAL years ago now, and I can honestly say, I am a better SLP because of it.  I love to learn more and change and grow!  Has this happened to you?!?!

Are you refreshed and ready for the next stop?!  Don't forget to mark down my secret will help you earn the chance to win a BIG prize at the end of the hop!  Don't skip a step, sequencing is important! :)
