Let's take a silly quiz. Send us your answers - the most imaginative/true ones will be rewarded.

1. Runs all day, but never walks,
Often murmurs, but never talks,
It has a bed, but never sleeps,
It has a mouth but never eats.
What is it?


2. What grows bigger the more you take out of it?

3. Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit have six children who are boy rabbits. Each boy rabbit has two sisters. How many children are there in the Rabbit family?

4. Every morning, it takes Mr. Finster 3 minutes to boil an egg for his breakfast. One day, 2 friends joined him for breakfast. How long will it take him to boil 3 eggs?

6. It was the first day of school. The teacher had several new students in the class. she asked all the children to write their names and their date of birth for her. The first 2 names she looked at were those of girls. She saw that they both had the same last name. They also had the same birthday. "Will Jane and June Campbell please stand?" asked the teacher. Two girls stood up, and the teacher saw that they looked just alike. "Oh, you're twins," she said. One of the girls shook her head. "No," she said. "We're sisters, but we're not twins." How could they be sisters and be the same age, but not be twins?

Your name could be in here!

teacher1.jpgPerfect Teacher!

A Teacher Is…
Someone who is wise...
Who cares about the students and wears no disguise.
But is honest and open and shares from the heart.
Not just lessons from books, but life where you are.
A teacher takes time to help and tutor.
With English or math or on a computer.
It's (your favourite teacher' name) who's patient, even in stress.
Who never gives less than the very best!
Not that I was the perfect student,
But you were the perfect teacher for me!

A few jokes

The child comes home from his first day at school.
Mother asks, "What did you learn today?"
The kid replies, "Not enough. I have to go back tomorrow."

The teacher is droning away in the classroom when he notices a student sleeping way up in the back row. The teacher shouts to the sleeping student's neighbor, "Hey wake that student up!" The neighbor yells back, "You put him to sleep, you wake him up!"

Teacher: Johnny, you know you can't sleep in my class.
Johnny: I know. But maybe if you were just a little quieter, I could.

Love Is ...
Finish the sentence. Send us your definition of love.

Here are some of my students' bright definitions:

Love is you
And me, too.
Love is a rose
shining on your nose.
Love is a big touch.

Love is so, so much. Sanela Stručić, 6.A

Love is my mum, my dad, my sister.. When my mum tells me "YOU ARE MY HEART". When my dad goes with me to some nice place. When my sister helps me with my homework. When my family tells me "WE LOVE YOU" and when I tell this to them. That is LOVE. Paula Markov, 5.B

Love is a beautiful flower which grows on the love tree. Love is a friend's hug and the birds' song. Love grows in our hearts. Love can't be broken. Edi Fulir 6.C

Love is for me like a star in the sky. Love is for me like a flower.
Love is for me like a red rose. Love is for me like a kiss in the dark.
Love is for me like the violin song. Love is for me like a big heart.
Love is for me like your eyes. Love is for me like your hair.
Love is for me like your smile. Love is for me like you.
Love is for me like the whole world.
Petra Mikulec 5.B

clip_image001.jpgexternal image bullet.gifFunny Valentine's Poems

I see your face when I am dreaming...
that is why I wake up screaming.

I love your smile, your face and you eyes,
Oh, God, I'm good at telling lies!

Love is the most beautiful flower someone can give to you.
Valentine's Day is the best day for love.
You can't buy somebody's love
but you can buy a flower to find your love.
I can't even think how love can hurt.
But I know I will find my real love.
Srećko Vrbančić, 6.A

Love is for me like the Sun that shines
out of a dark cloud.
Love is like a butterfly that tickles your belly.
Love is when a girl hugs a boy or
when a boy gives her a kiss.
Teo Oros 6.C

Love is when two ducks meet and swim together in a lake. Love is when my dad says to my mum "You're the most beautiful woman!" Love is when a dog plays with a cat. You need to take care of love and be happy even if you have problems. Every person needs someone in life to say "I love you". Dorotea Perović, 6.B
