March is really buzzing by fast and before we know it, it will be April Fools Day. I love the fun spirited pranks that go along with the day. Kids always think they are so clever pulling the same old pranks we did when young. They really haven't changed all that much. It's the parents who have changed, but that's another blog post.
Anyway, April Fools Day means trickery. My favorite school prank involved a principal coming to a teachers class to pull him out in the hall and whisper the "bad news." Ha! Ha! Apparently, the state had lost the kids achievement test scores, and the kids were going to have to take the tests all over, again. There never were so many pale faced kids in one room since the blizzard of 1888. There really was a blizzard, then. You can look it up.
Next, came everyone's favorite phrase: APRILFOOLS! Gotta love it!
Here are two resources to add to your April Fools Day fun.
If you want some April Fools Day fun with your class, check out my logic puzzles. Each one sells for $1.12. Why the .12¢? Why not?
This first one is fun because the teachers play the jokes on the kids. Isn't that how it's supposed to be? There is definitely something karma-like about teaching. I must have destroyed a village in a past life and now these kids are getting back at me!
Check this out! Santa and The April Fools Day Prankster is a great seasonal product because it can be used twice a year. Don't think those naughty pranksters are going to fool ole Santa! And if you don't have time to get it done, pull it out for Christmas.
