Kids are brighter than you think. (Or they just have a different way of looking at life…before it gets crushed out of them.) Here’s proof:
TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America.
MARIA: Here it is.

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 —

MILLIE: All right… ‘I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.’
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.
TEACHER: Clyde , your composition, My Dog, is exactly the
same as your brother’s. Did you copy his?
CLYDE : No, sir. Same dog.
TEACHER: Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking
when people are no longer interested?
HAROLD: A teacher.
