Lesson 3: Puns

This Lesson 3: Puns lesson plan also includes:

Encourage more pun-derstanding of word play in your literary scholars as they explore Brian P. Cleary's book Rhyme and Punishment: Adventures in Wordplay. Although this isn't suggested, consider beginning this study by simply showing several puns to learners and asking why they are funny, seeing if they can come up with a definition themselves. Explain the concept and read the text, discussing the double meaning (page numbers are recommended). After guided practice, readers use a graphic organizer to replace puns with correct words. Can scholars write their own puns?
