Beauty of Children’s Innocence

Three childrenTwo children

 Children’s responses can make us laugh – as well as think.
So enjoy a bit of childish innocence and its humour, remembering that we were all there at one time.

Teacher:    Maria, go to the map and find North America.
Maria:       Here it is.
Teacher:    Correct. Now class, who discovered America?

Class:        Maria. 
Teacher:    John, why are you doing your math multiplication on the floor? 
John:          You told me to do it without using tables. 

Teacher:    Glenn, how do you spell “crocodile”?

Glenn:       K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L' 
Teacher:    No, that's wrong. 

Glenn:       Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell it.   

Teacher:   Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?

Donald:    H I J K L M N O. 
Teacher:   What are you talking about? 

Donald:     Yesterday you said it's H to O.   

Teacher:   Winnie, name one important thing we have today that we didn't have ten years ago. 
Winnie:     Me! 

Teacher:   Glen, why do you always get so dirty?

Glen:        Well, I'm a lot closer to the ground than you are.   

Teacher:   Millie, give me a sentence starting with “I”.

Millie:       I  is ... 
Teacher:   No, Millie ... Always say, “I  am.”

Millie:       All right ...  “I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.”

Teacher:   George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louie, do you know why his father didn't punish him?

Louis:       Because George still had the axe in his hand.     

Teacher:   Clyde, your composition on “My Dog” is exactly the same as your brother's.  Did you copy his?

Clyde:       No, sir. It's the same dog.     

Laughter is the soul’s medicine!
