A first grade teacher was having trouble with one of
her students.The teacher asked, “Johnny what is your
problem?” Johnny answered, “I’m too smart for the
first grade. My sister is in the third grade and I’m
smarter than she is !!I think I should be in the third
grade too!” The teacher had had enough. She took
Johnny to the principal’s office. While Johnny waited
in the outer office, the teacher explained to the
principal what the situation was… The principal told
the teacher he would give the boy a test and if he
failed to answer any of his questions he was to go
back to the first grade and behave. The teacher
agreed. Johnny was brought in and the conditions are
explained to him and he agrees to take the test.
Principal: " What is 3x3?"
Principal: “What is 6 x 6 ?”
And so it went with every question the principal
thought a third grader should know. The principal
looks at the teacher and tells her, " I think Johnny
can go to the third grade," The teacher says to the
principal, “Let me ask him some questions?” The
principal and Johnny both agree.
The teacher asks, “What does a cow have four of that I
have only two of?”
Johnny, after a moment, “legs”
Teacher: “What is in your pants that you have but I do
The principal’ eyes open really wide and before he
could stop the answer, Johnny replied," Pockets".
The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the
teacher, " Put Johnny in the fifth grade, I missed the
last two questions".
