Reflection: Joy Introducing and Identifying Irony - Section 1: Introduction & Welcome: It's Umbrella Day!

A few kids were shocked with themselves, and proud, when they found out they got the answer correct. These little moments of pride and joy really build the community in the classroom. 

The answer is "dozens." If you drop the "s", one letter of the six in the word, you are left with the word "dozen," an amount of twelve.
