Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?

Updated on September 23, 2009

seriously..:)

Sometimes students (kids) have the most interesting replies which can also be quite funny.

As a teacher you have the " privilage" of experiencing those interesting moments whith your precious little young student.

Especially in the first and second grade when students are still so naive, they don't really know a difference between stuff they must or mustn't say . They can tell the teacher quite interesting stuff ( about what's going on exactly at home and details are not spared..) Sometimes things they say can be emberasing for the parents so then we do hope the teacher isn't the type to go around brabbling about all the juicy info..

But what's especially cute with those first and second graders is that whatever they think they say; if they like the teacher they will say so to her or (and this really happened to my mother who happens to be a first grade teacher..)once in the middle of class as the teacher was explaining something to the class; suddenly this girl get's up from her seat and runs towards the teacher and gives her a huge HUG and says I LOVE YOU TEACHER!

Now, you could say ok very cute but she's disturbing the lesson it's not sweet qt qll...But thqt 's just the thing with kids, they're UNPREDICTABLE.. true they do diturb the lessons a lot in ways older students would never but that's so precious about them most young students are not disturbing class because they want to, they just have this urge to do something and they don't think twice. You do have students that are disturbing out of being naughty.. yes inĀ  every class there is a student or two out there to make the teacher's life miserable (ok that's strong ) but mostly you can do something about it.

Now, older students like fourth and fifth graders are sweet in their way..The teacher's treat them already like older kids but they still have this childish side a bit of a naivity..

Like the teacher's can ask smart questions and they answer very very straight which makes the teacher in a funny position cuz the expecting answer was something complete different.

Okay in oder to understand what i mean i have searched some of such questions and answers

these are all from fifth graders.

TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America.
MARIA: Here it is.
TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America?
CLASS: Maria.

GLENN: K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L
TEACHER: No, that's wrong
GLENN: Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell it.

TEACHER: Millie, give me a sentence starting with "I."
MILLIE: I is...

MILLIE: All right... "I am the ninth letter of the alphabet."
