A first grade


A first grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students. One day she asked Wilson what his problem was.

He replied, “I’m too smart for the first grade. My sister is in the third grade and I’m smarter than her too.”

The teacher took him to the principal’s office and explained the situation. The principal told her that he would give Wilson a test, and if he failed to answer one question he would have to go back to the first grade and be quiet. The teacher and Wilson both agreed.

“What is 3 times 3?” asked the principal.

“9,” replied Wilson.

“6 times 6?”


And so it went on like this, the principal asked him every question a third grader should know. Finally after about an hour, he told the teacher, “I see no reason why Wilson can’t go to the third grade, he answered all of my questions right.”

The teacher asked if she could ask him some questions too. The principal and Wilson agreed.

“What does a cow have four of that I only have two of?” The teacher asked.

“Legs,” Wilson said.

“What do you have in your pants that I don’t have?”

The principal gasped, but before he could stop him from answering, Wilson said, “Pockets.”

“What does a dog do that a man steps into?”


“What starts with F and ends with K and involves a lot of excitement?”

“Firetruck,” Wilson said.

The principal breathed a big sigh of relief and said, “Put Wilson in the fifth grade, I got the last four questions wrong myself.”
