I compiled a few jokes to use with my 5th grade students weekly. I plan to use them on Thursdays for “Jueves de ja ja ja”. I decided to re-create them to make them more elementary student-friendly. I really want to grow this list, so if you have or know of any other short and easy to understand jokes in Spanish, feel free to share them in the comments.

If the jokes are understandable, they are a wonderful teaching tool to lower the affective filter and generate a comfortable learning environment for students. I like to use them at the beginning of class. An easy way to do it is to project the joke on a screen and give students some time to look at them and to convey meaning. Then we talk about them and the words they might not understand. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
