April Fools!

I'm not a huge fan of April Fools, so I usually totally ignore it. This year I caved in and played a joke on my little first graders (it's not my original idea, I saw the joke on several websites). I had a covered pan on my desk all day and told them I had a surprise for them at the end of the day. Just before it was time to leave I told them I had brownies in the pan for them. They were so excited that I started to feel a little bad for what was really in the pan. Brown Es.
It took them a few seconds for the joke to click, but when it did it was priceless. They thought it was so funny and loved that I tricked them. As we were leaving they asked if I could trick them again. What a fun age!
