April Fools’ Day Writing Prompt Template

Have some fun this April Fools’ Day with this cute glasses-themed writing prompt. Celebrating April Fools’ Day can create a positive and fun atmosphere in the classroom, which can boost student morale and make them feel more connected with their classmates.

Use this template with the writing prompt of “My silly April Fools’ Day…” to get kids writing a funny story about what could happen to them on April Fools’ day.

✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • improve hand-eye coordination
  • develop focus and attention.

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe. Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
