A 3rd-Grade Teacher Always Took Roll Call

A 3rd-grade teacher always took roll call each morning and had the pupils answer by reciting a short poem.

The first kid who sat in the first row was a teacher’s pet.

He stood and said,

“My name is Dan, and when I become a man, I would like to go to Japan if I can, and I think I can.”

The next kid was a little girl who sat in the middle of the room.

She stood up and answered the roll call by stating,

“My name is Suzy, and when I become a lady I would like to have a baby … if I can, and I think I can.”

The next on the list was Little Johnny, a smart guy sitting in the back of the room.

He stood up and said,

“My name is Johnny, and I don’t give about Japan but I would like to help Suzy in her plan if I can … and I think can!”
