Thanksgiving Humor

I found these Thanksgiving themed jokes floating around Facebook this week.  Even though it’s after Thanksgiving I am going to use these (or some of these) in therapy this week.  I believe they’re still relevant because the students just experienced Thanksgiving and with any luck remembered some of the details.  I am big on teaching how to recognize and understand humor.  Understanding humor is a huge part of social pragmatics.   I often have an objective focusing on humor written into my student’s ed plans.

If students can’t “get it” they are often left behind both within the social realm and as curriculum/materials becomes more challenging.  Subtleties in language are all around us, from tv to textbooks.  Some kids “get it” easily and naturally and some do not.  Most of our language disabled kids need a lot of help learning how to “get it”.
