Observe the child in peer discussions throughout the day.
If humor is not seen spontaneously, the adult can ask the child to tell them a joke or something that she thinks is funny.
The child understands how the unexpected is funny and how language used in different ways can be funny. He may tell a joke using a framework (e.g., a knock-knock joke), but not know why it is or is not funny.
Include classroom discussions on themes and relevant topics into the day.
