USING JOKES TO TEACH
 
Dear colleagues,
in case you haven ´t yet come across this and you love using jokes to teach, check this out:
 
 
Just a ´teaser ´...
"Am I the first man you have ever loved?" he said.
"Of course," she answered "Why do men always ask the same question?".

First of all, when they catch a spelling mistake you ´ve made. That ´s absolutely normal. Obviously that was lack of attention. Then if they ask you something you don ´t know at that time, say you ´ll check and tell them later on. That ´s another normal situation that may happen a lot, and the adding of points, simply correct it and apologize. Those situations are all part of teachers ´ lives. Good luck. Giovanna

Thanks for that laughing time dear !
 
I would like just to add one :
 
2 young men work in the same office. 1 of them marries a beautiful woman and they go in honeymoon. When he is back the friend asks him ´Now that you´re married what do you miss the most ?´
The groom says ´My evening train !´.
 
Good night all.

How about this one:
 
Little Tim: (coming home from school) Mommy? I  have a drinking problem!
Mother: My God, Timmy, you ´re only six!!!
Mother to Father: This is YOU ´RE fault, George!
Father: MY fault??? Maybe if YOU ´D spend more time with him!!!
Mother: Oh God! our six year old son has a drinking problem!!!!!!!!!!
Mother to father: He sure doesn ´t need a role model like you for a father!!!
Father: Me? I ´ve done NOTHING but give to this family, and THIS is what I get??? FINE! I ´m leaving!
Mother: Well, FINE! I don ´t need you, and surely TIMMY doesn ´t need you either!
Mother: Timmy, oh, don ´t cry sweetheart, we ´ll be alright without daddy, I promise! Now, please trust me, I ´m your friend, talk to me, tell me about your drinking problem. We ´ll work it out together.
Little Tim: (takes out his Maths book out of his backpack) ... "if Joe drinks one liter of orange juice, and Bob drinks two liters, how much did they drink all together....?"
