Kids Say the Darndest Things

Remember Art Linkletter?    Here is a reminder, or a history lesson (depending on your age).  He was great.

Chau sent me these via email last night.  VERY FUNNY!  And these reminded me of Art Linkletter.  As a wanna be teacher, I know from experience that kids say the darndest thing.  🙂


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:     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:    Now, Simon, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?

SIMON:         No sir, I don’t have to, my Mom is a good cook.
