"The first of April is the day we remember
what we are the other 364 days of the year."~By Mark Twain~ Don't ya love it?
A teacher friend of mine always dressed up in a long black wig and old lady clothes and changed her voice when kids came in on April Fools Day. She had a wart and fake teeth and she told them all that she was the new teacher Miss Viola Swamp, a cousin of their teacher, hence the resemblance. She'd stomp around demanding they work hard today and that she was very strict. By the time the kids were a little tense, she'd bring out this book. Then she'd read them the story Miss Nelson is Missing. It is the story of a teacher who dresses up and is kind of scary until the kids figure out it is really their teacher in costume.
This year for April Fools Day I thought we could make a fun Joke Book.
I have collected many joke books over the years so I typed up a list of jokes they could use. We spent about 15 minutes copying some jokes they chose onto this cute stationery with a little laughing man on top. Then I copied everybody else's sheet of jokes and made enough for the whole class.
We are making them into a whole class joke book. The cover is a giant smile with teeth. It will be cute . On Monday we will have to share our joke books with each other!
Here is the cute paper we use to write our funny jokebooks.
