The teacher brings a statue of Venus into class and asks, “What do you like best about it, class? Let’s start with you, Robert.”
Robert: “The artwork.”
Teacher: “Very good. And you, Peter?”
Christmas break was over and the teacher was asking the class about their vacations.
She turned to Little Johnny and asked what he did over the break.
“We visited my grandmother in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania,” he replied.
“That sounds like an excellent vocabulary word,” the teacher said. “Can you tell the class how you spell that?”
