For April Fools, one of my teacher friends played this awesome trick on her students!! Liked it so much I had to post this somehow! She told her students that she made them brownies. She told them she would give them to them at the end of the day. All day long they talked about them. She cut out a bunch of brown letter Es. She pulled out the "brown Es" at the end of the day and they were so sad! Good thing she had brought real brownies too! This is so great, so stealing this Brittany!!

First day project. "Friendship tree". All students add their fingerprint and the teacher hangs it in the room as a reminder that we're all friends.- DOING THIS :)

if only this really worked!
