New Words For Primary School Children

207

The nursery school children were now in their first year of primary school. Their teacher wanted them to be more grown up since they were no longer in nursery. She told them to use grown up words instead of baby words. She then asked them to tell her what they did during the summer.

The first little one stood up and said he went to see his Nana. The teacher said, “No, no, you went to see your Grandmother. Use the grown up word.”

The next little one said she went for a trip on a choo-choo. The teacher again said “No, no, you went on a trip on a train. That’s the grown up word.”

Then the teacher asked the third little one what he did during the summer. He proudly stated that he read a book. The teacher asked what book he had read. He puffed out his chest and in a very adult way replied, “Winnie the Shit.”
