Take a bad joke and make it a skit! Any joke, no matter how lame, can be massively improved if you act it out. How to do that? First, break your joke up into roles (you be the duck, I’ll be the lady with the big hat etc.).

Then make your classroom the stage. If you can add props so much the better. When you’re ready to begin, step center stage and hold a towel in front of your face while the class quiets down. Then slowly, very slowly, gather it up into your hands revealing your face. Then announce the skit and set the scene.

If you need a building, fire hydrant, mountain get a kid from class up on stage and hang a sign on him (“tree”) and tell him not to move no matter what. And don’t let the class just sit there…tell them to hoot and holler of the good guys, and hiss/boo for the bad guys.

MOST IMPORTANT:  When you finish your skit take a HUGE bow to signal the applause!!

What is the center of gravity? The letter "V" !

If the pilgrims came on the Mayflower than what does the teacher come on? The scholar ships.

What's the longest piece of furniture in the school? The multiplication table.

Father: How do you like going to school? Son: The going bit is fine, as is the coming home bit too, but I'm not too keen on the time in-between!

My teacher pointed his ruler at me and said, at the end of this ruler there is a problem. I got in trouble after asking which end.

Teachers who take attendance are ABSENT-MINDED!

Teachers deserve a lot of credit...of course if we paid them more they wouldn't need so much credit (Ok, this one isn't for the classroom but it is funny!).

Beethoven

Did you hear the story of the tourist passing a graveyard in Vienna on October 31st?  As he passes he hears some music.  No one is around, so he starts searching for the source.  He finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827. Then he realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward! Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend, to return with him.

When they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backward. Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar. When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backward. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th.  By the next day the word has spread and crowds have gathered around the grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played backward.

Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group. Someone in the crowd asks him if he has an explanation for the music. "Oh, it's nothing to worry about" says the caretaker. "He's just decomposing!"
