Best of AGT: An Odd Story

This is a story about a teacher and students, a typical lesson in an atypical classroom.  It was first posted on 17 February 2013 and you can check it out here

Down to business...

During our numeracy lesson on Tuesday, I asked for a student volunteer to tell me if the daily number was odd or even.  Patrick raised his hand and eagerly announced that the number was odd (it was, in fact, even).  I replied, “Okay Patrick, why do you think it is odd?”  Patrick, without skipping a beat, answered, “I don’t know Miss, it just looks kind of weird.” 

The class erupted in laughter and even I had to grin.
