How does implementation help you out throughout the year? I am curious to know what things have worked for you and what things have not worked for you through an implementation standard.  Continue


 Time for some levity and humor.

I often use jokes in the classroom and have even built some nice lessons around humor. Mr. Bean works well. Also see these activities for download that I just put up in our Sharing Forum.

One joke I use a lot is:

"I like seafood. When I SEE food, I eat it." -- a cute pun and if a student gets it right away, you can tell they are of a fairly high level.

Got any stupid jokes?

Here are a couple joke presentations I've made....

Why did Silly Billy open then close the refrigerator very quickly?

Oh, I got the silly billy joke, David! It was another joke I did not get- I don't see it here anymore, maybe the poster removed it : ). I have a really bad, dumb NYC joke- it was my favorite when I was 5 years old, and I told it constantly... ok, Did you hear about the flood in NYC? Superman wet his pants!

My favorite joke to tell my children when they were little: What did the mama broom say to her baby? Go to sweep, my little one.
A) What's the best thing to put into a fruitcake?

B) Where does King Kong sit in a movie theatre?

-- Your teeth!
-- Anywhere he wants to!
Here are some classic jokes for the classroom! :) From our Audio + page. (best in IE browser)

Here is a classic joke that actually is a true story! It actually happened, probably more than once!

The new family in the neighborhood overslept and their six-year-old daughter missed her school bus.

The father, though late for work himself, had to drive her. Since he did not know the way, he said that she would have to direct him to the school.

They rode several blocks before she told him to turn the first time, several more before she indicated another turn. This went on for 20 minutes - but when they finally reached the school, it proved to be only a short distance from their home.

The father, much annoyed, asked his daughter why she'd led him around in such a circle.

The child explained, "That's the way the school bus goes, Daddy. It's the only way I know."
Shoot David, this is not working at all in FF for me... I wonder if all the easy listener lists are having the same problem...
I took a looooong time but finally finished these funny stories. Find the powerpoint and handouts in our Resources - Story area. Enjoy. Here it is also full screen! Laugh a little.


Well worth the wait!
