Well, today I had a few planned, and I think they were pretty funny. If you're a pinterest fanatic like myself then surely you've seen this one. On the way back from specials this morning, I told my kids that I'd 'prepared them some brownies and already passed them out on their desks.' Of course they got excited until we got back to class and they saw the brown E's that I had prepared. I let them think I was an awful person for a minute before revealing that my intern Chelsea had actually baked them real brownies. :)

a special surprise!" Mwahahaha.
If you're a faithful Facebook Fan of mine like you should be, then you may have grabbed it last night, but if not grab yourself a copy of the Fake April Word Search to use tomorrow or next year by clicking on the image!
I also told the kids a few white lies just to rile them up a bit.
1) That from this point forward only cursive handwriting would be accepted, and that even in math I expect to see "cursive numbers." (Which they "should have learned in 2nd grade.")
2) That because they hadn't filled in the bubbles on their state tests in cursive we'd have to take the ones we've done over again.
3) That it was much too cold outside to go out for recess. (It's actually one of the first warm days we've had and we've been doing state tests all morning!)
And of course, I have to play a couple good-natured pranks on my colleagues. So I left this in the teacher's lounge on the lunch table.
And I prepared another little treat for the hallway outside our classroom. For those of you that don't know, I have a 3 foot long corn snake as a class pet. People are always asking me if she can "get out of her tank." Well, I made it look like she had. Good times!
Did you play any April Fool's Day jokes on your kids? If so, what did you do?
