Sometimes lessons plans don’t go the way they were planned, and by sometimes, I mean every time. The best thing I have learned to use in those crucial seconds that determine whether you keep the kids attention or you lose them for the next twenty minutes, is a classic vegetable joke. Sometimes those classroom management tricks work and we all know at least one, but sometimes they don’t. In my experience however, if you stand in a room with kids and say “do you wanna hear a joke?” you have caught their attention. Here are some of the best corny veggie jokes I have come across (pun intended)
