Not April Fooling Anybody

| Learning | April 5, 2017

(I’m volunteering in a year three classroom and it happens to be April Fool’s day. A student well known for messing about comes up to me at the start of the day.)

Student: “Miss! Miss!”

Me: “Yes?”

Student: “I saw a mouse.”

Me: *crouches to get on his level* “Is this an April Fool’s?”

Student: *barely able to contain himself laughing – so adorable* “Yes!”

Me: “Well done. You got me. Now go sit down.”

(He was absolutely thrilled his “prank” worked, and was actually fairly well behaved the rest of the day!)
