April Fools!

As you know, I'm a third grade teacher. Which means that, naturally, I had to April Fool my kids. Well, I got them good! I passed out a letter that said:

Dear Parents,

Beginning April 2, 2008 students will notlonger be allowed to wear shorts or tennis shoes to school. They will need to wear black, brown, or blue dress shoes. Boys must wear pants and girls may either wear pants or a long skirt. Any person not following this rule will be sent to the office for the day.

Thank you,

Front Office

They were in an UPROAR!


I let them freak out for about 30 minutes, then I told them it was a joke. It was hilarious!

These are the perks of being a teacher. Torturing children. It's so fun.

How funny! Your worm drawing reminds me of a friendlier version of the worm leader thing in the movie "Dune" :)

One of my roommates is a 9th grade science teacher. He told his students that they would watch the last half of the movie they watched when they had a substitute. He waited until they put all of their things away then broke the joke to them. He said one kid almost threw a pencil at him, until he gave him the stink eye.

It's not torture! It's character building for them nd just plain entertainment for you. (And us!)

I love it! I just wrote in my blog how I've never fooled anyone so fabulously but wish I had. Great job, way to celebrate accordingly.
