"There's a spider on your head!"
"Hey, your shoe's untied!"
If you're a teacher (particularly of younger grades) you know what I'm talking about!
With that being said, I played a bit of a trick on my students last year...
I super glued a quarter and a nickel to the sidewalk just outside of my building! (The Kindergarten building was separate from the rest of the school.) The kids picked and picked and picked, but they couldn't get those darn coins to come up!!
I was rolling! Although of course I had to keep my laughter in for a little bit so they would keep trying. Finally, I had to shout, "APRIL FOOL'S!"
It was a blast! Even better - one of the adults I worked with also tried to pick them up and couldn't figure out why she couldn't get them! lol
Now - I am NOT a mean person, but I see nothing wrong with a good joke once in awhile. And I got the "ok" from my principal and custodian before I did this. Which, I'm glad I did, because it took almost a month before those darn coins came off! I had tried scraping them off and everything else I could think of, but they finally came off about 5 weeks later with the rain.
Have you ever played an April Fool's trick on your students?
