A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for her homework assignment.

The teacher graded it and the child brought it home.

She returned to school the next day with the following note:

Dear Ms. Davis,

I want to be perfectly clear on my child’s homework illustration.

It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male
customers with money.
I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm.

This drawing is of me selling a shovel.


Mrs. Harrington


The Teacher tells the class they are going to play a game,she will describe an object and the students will tell her what she had described.

Teacher: “The first object is Red, Round, and has a stem.

 Timmy: ” I know what it is, it’s an apple.

 Teacher: “That’s right, I like the way you’re thinking.

“OK the next item is round, has a peel, and you eat it.

 Christopher: “I know what it is, it’s an orange.

 Teacher: “That’s right, I like the way you’re thinking.

Johnny: “Can I try, Teacher? 

 Teacher: “Yes Johnny, but, Keep it clean! 

 Johnny sticks his hands in his pockets and feels around for a second, and says “My object is round, hard, and has a head on it.

 Teacher: “Alright Johnny, go to the office! 

 Johnny: “No Teacher, it’s a quarter, but, I like the way you’re thinking!
