Students can "tweet" a summary of a book they are reading or a book that you read aloud. You can choose how many words are allowed per tweet. Students can even add "hashtags" to their tweets. The hashtags can contain key words from the story, book title, themes, characters, etc. Students can display their tweets in a pocket chart. Every Tuesday students can add a new tweet to the chart. Jennifer even had her class create silly Twitter usernames (@asheridan08 is mine).
TEXT YOUR SPELLING WORDS
Students will have a blast thinking they are "texting" their spelling words. Have students use their pencil eraser to tap the letters on the keyboard to spell their spelling words. Then students have to write their words on the lines provided. This would make a great center or just a fun way for students to practice their spelling words!
Thank you Jennifer for sharing! :)
