Two students were arguing when their teacher entered the classroom.
The teacher says, “Why are you arguing?”
One boy answers, “We found a ten-dollar bill and decided to give it to whoever tells the biggest lie.”
“You should be ashamed of yourself,” said the teacher, “when I was your age I didn’t even know what a lie was.”
The boys gave the ten dollars to the teacher.
Teacher asks children to come up with a sentence beginning with “I”
The teacher asks the class of children to come up with a sentence beginning with “I”.
After some children come to the front with predictable statements about having a cat or a certain toy, a child steps up and says a sentence, “I is-” and is immediately interrupted by the teacher, “I am!”
She side-eyes the teacher, frowns, and ignores her teacher, starting again, “I is-” again, the teacher interrupts her, this time a little more snappily, “It’s I am! Use the proper word!”
The girl turns to look at her this time, eyelids drooped with exasperation.
“Fine,” she sighs, “I AM the ninth letter of the alphabet.”
