I though maybe you would like to see how your children got into their homeroom on Friday, the day celebrated my birthday. Here are some before pictures. Two rolls of saran wrap can go very far.
Here are some of their faces when they first came in…
And here are some more after pictures.
Then, my ELA class got to participate in a competition called “Who Knows Mrs. M the Most?. The instructions read for them to read through the whole packet before they actually answered the questions. The last question told them it was a fake competition. One student, Cowen, figured out my April Fool’s trick in the first 5 minutes. I could hear him breathing heavy and giggling. Bryson was next The rest followed a little/lot longer. Later, I told my math class that I needed for them to take a short assessment for report card reasons. The questions didn’t have real answers. One question read something like; 1.2 km = 12 mi 7 mi 10 mi or too far to walk to school. Another one read; 1 800 866 5798 is close to what number and one of the choices was Mrs. M’s phone number. After about 10 minutes and the kids giggling and fretting, I announced, “April Fools. You are taking a fake assessment!” There was balling and tearing up of paper and ‘Mrs. Ms’ whines all over the room. I love April Fools! Don’t worry, they all got homemade chocolate chip cookies for putting up with my foolery.
