Teacher Gets Furious When 7-Year-Old Girl Can't Answer This Simple Question
Jokes that involve children have got to be the funniest because there is such innocence in them. It's always a challenge for us to remember that children think very differently to adults.
And the funny thing is that their perspective sounds more logical than ours most times, which should be a cause for concern!
Lena was a second-grade teacher in a small Kansas City school. She had been teaching her students about the different days, months, and years, and how they all fit together.
As the end of the school day was approaching, Lena felt confident that her students had a good grasp on the subject.
“So, one last question for today. Can anyone tell me how many days there are in a year?”
Little Emma raises her hand.
“Yes, Emma,” Lena said and pointed at the eager student.
“Seven!” the girl said confidently.
“Remember, I said in a year, not in a week. Now, let’s try again, how many days are there in a year?”
“Seven!” Emma says again.
Now Lena starts getting really annoyed. Hadn’t the stupid girl been paying any attention at all?
“Emma! This classroom is for learning, not for clowning around!”
Little Emma replies, “Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That’s seven! If you know of any other days, please tell me…”
Lena was so stunned by the girl’s reply that she dismissed her class on the spot!
What do you think? Was the girl right?
