A “Humorous” Student -January Blog-


A word to add to your vocabulary list “Humorous”.   So what does it mean?  Well let me explain it with an experience I had teaching an English class with a student of mine a few years back.

I asked the students to name an animal that begins with an “E”. One boy said, “Elephant.” I then asked for an animal that begins with a “T”. The same boy said, “Two elephants.”

So realizing he was just trying to be “Humorous” I told him he was not to answer any more questions and was to let the other students answer.  After that I asked for an animal beginning with “M”.

No one answered at first and than the boy said “Maybe an Elephant?” Yes I have to admit it was “humorous”
