Happy April Fool's Day
It's April Fool's Day today. Do you use jokes in class? I often do in order to bring some fun or just cheer up my students at the end of a tiring day.
However, I sometimes struggle to find good clean jokes. Here's a few favourite jokes that always manage to make my students smile:
Q: What do you call a sleeping bull? A: A bull-dozer.
"What is the plural of man, Willie?" asked the teacher. "Men," he answered. "And, what is the plural of child?" "Twins," replied Willie.
Teacher: Amit, make a sentence starting with the letter 'I'.
Amit: I is...
Teacher: No, no, no, don't say "I is", you say "I am".
Amit: OK, I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.
Q: Why are fish so smart? A: Because they live in schools
Teacher asked George: “How can you prove the earth is round?” George replied: “I can’t. Besides, I never said it was.”
Teacher: “Why are you late, Joseph?” Joseph: “Because of a sign down the road.” Teacher: “What does a sign have to do with you being late?” Joseph: “The sign said, ‘School Ahead, Go Slow!'”
Q: Why didn't the chicken cross the road? A: Because there was a KFC on the other side!
A little girl came home from school and said to her mother,
"Mommy, today in school I was punished for something that I didn't do."
The mother exclaimed, "But that's terrible! I'm going to have a talk with your teacher about this ... by the way, what was it that you didn't do?"
The little girl replied, "My homework."
What is your students' favourite joke?
Meanwhile, the April issue of the e-zine "Inspirational English" will be out on Monday!... And it is NOT a joke!
