$4.00

Description

May the 4th, Star Wars Day is a favorite holiday worldwide. The perfect pun formed in the date simply lends itself to using this holiday to our advantage as educators and teaching the figurative language concept of puns. Using Star Wars puns makes this lesson great any time of the year.

This resource includes a google slide presentation packed with information about puns that you can keep simple, or dive deeper by examining homophonic and homographic pun formation.

After you have presented all there is about puns, guide your little stormTROOPERS through the Star Wars puns. They can use the colorful companion worksheet filled with beloved character representations to analyze each pun.

There is also the option to use the Happy Hive Homeschooling video with Mrs. Crabtree as the teacher to guide you through the pun-tastic lesson and you can take over for the analysis!

Here is why Teaching Puns is important:

When puns are used as a literary device, they cause the reader to think about the use of words. By introducing and teaching puns, and the critical thinking involved in analyzing them, you help children develop advanced reading skills. Puns are also known as a “play on words”, and after being introduced to them, children can use them in their writing. 

Perhaps they will even use the concept to name characters in their stories. You can provide them with famous examples such as Cruella De Vil (Her last name is Devil when pushed together, and essentially her first name is akin to her being cruel to the puppies).  Or this funny one: Justin Case. 

Introducing puns (figurative language) sparks creativity. By using high interest characters such as those related to May the 4th, the lesson becomes more than another boring Language Arts lesson. Your kids will come up with examples you never dreamed of because they are so familiar with the movies, cartoons and comic books related to the event. This is exactly the critical thinking we want to encourage. 

Your kids may even point out that May 5th is for those on the Dark Side – Revenge of the Fifth (Revenge of the Sith)
