Teaching "Puns" for Fun


 Compiled by Missouri NEA's Teaching & Learning Committee


Teachers never write their students off.
Librarians are all booked up.
Soccer players get their kicks.
Musicians are all keyed up.
Nurses love to give shots.
Recipe for a great speech – a lot of shortening.
Having a sense of humor is better than having no sense at all.
The road to success is always under construction.
Think twice before you say nothing.
In youth we learn, in age we understand.
Keep an open mind something might fall in.
Failure is our teacher.
A tongue weighs little, why can’t some people hold it?
Math teachers have too many problems.

Share your story

Even though we are not at school supporting Missouri students, members continue to help every day during this crisis. MNEA wants to share your stories as we struggle through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are hearing about members who are continuing to care for their students by

  • volunteering at school district Grab & Go meal distribution centers and food drives
  • providing child care for essential medical staff
  • shopping for the elderly so they don’t have to leave the safety of their homes

Your stories help show that educators don’t stop caring. Please send your stories with pictures to MNEA at coronavirus@mnea.org, so we can share them. You can post to social media, making sure you tag @MissouriNEA and use the hashtags  #MNEAheroes and  #MNEAprotects.
