Daily Joke: First-Grade Teacher Is Showing Pictures of Animals to Her Students

While teachers could probably fill an entire volume of books with funny things they have encountered over the years, we have only compiled a few jokes for today’s dose of funny.

GUESS THE ANIMAL

Miss Clarkson wanted to teach her first graders more about animals but decided first to find out how many they already knew and could name.

She held up the picture of a lamb, to which a little girl excitedly answered, “That’s a sheep!” 

“That’s right, well done!” Miss Clarkson said before she held up a picture of a camel. “Who can guess what this one is?” she asked the class. 

“That’s a camel!” one of the boys exclaimed. “Right on, well done!” Miss Clarkson said again before she held up a picture of a deer. But the class fell silent, and she offered a clue to help. “What does your mother call your father?” she asked.

Elated at having the answer, Franky said, “I know! I know! It's a lazy old goat!”

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

Miss Baker had her hands full with her first-grade class. In a last-ditch effort to get them quiet, she called them all to join her in a circle on the reading mat. “You guys all seem wide awake and full of energy, how about we play a game?” Miss Baker asked her students.

The children eagerly agreed, and Miss Baker went on to explain how it works. “The game aims to see if you manage only to use your inside voice to respond to a silly statement I make.”

To illustrate, she gave an example. “For instance, if I pulled a funny face, you have to laugh with your inside voice,” she said.

Johnny wanted to make sure he understood and asked, “Miss Baker, if we wanted to say something instead, do we have to use our inside voices through clenched teeth like you?”

SUBSTITUTES

Just before the start of school, Mike ran into Dan while heading to his locker. “Hey, did you hear our teacher is off sick today?” Dan told Mike.

“Really? Can we go home?” Mike asked. “Of course not,” Dan replied. “They sent a substitute teacher.”

Determined to make the best of the situation, Mike said, “Well, can I send in a substitute student?” 

In a similar joke of the day, the focus shifted to Financial Institutions, and the lengths they would go through to get their money back after failed loan payments.
