Will anybody be pulling an April Fools joke on their students?

Think they'll pull one on you?!

We had the best April Fools!
We are OUT of school for a scheduled weather day. Yay!!

I was so tempted to wake my boys up and tell them that we were late for school. But I wasn't willing to get up early and really didn't want to start the day like that. I need to come up with something else.

I pulled the BEST April Fool's joke on my third graders a couple of years ago. There is a website about something called a "tree octopus". It's a totally fake website (of course, there's no such thing lol!). There are pictures and facts about where and how this creature lives. I told my kids it was endangered and we were going to write reports using the website about this creature. Then, we would present them to my team teacher's class to raise awareness about this special animal. The kids were very suspicious at first, but when they saw the website they were hooked. Naturally, anything on the internet must be real! I even had my husband's aunt send me an email pretending to be a wildlife person coming to see us and give more information about this animal. I put her email up on my Promethean Board so they could see it. We made "Save the Tree Octopus" signs and everything! My kids held them up and someone read a report in front of my team teacher's class, and I got to yell April Fool's!!! at them after the report had been read and they were all standing there looking like fools! I laughed for days!!! They were so mad, but they thought it was a great joke (well, some of them did lol!!).
