TEACHER FEEDBACK ON THE FULL-YEAR RESOURCE:
♥ My students love doing these. There are no complaints about practicing sentence correction skills when these are used.
♥ Amazing! My kids loved that it was relevant to their lives and they understood. We had a blast doing this!
♥ I am using these right now as bell ringers for my 9th graders and we are enjoying them. They have them on a handout and then we go over their answers on the Power Point which does a great job of explaining why the corrections are made. The students are both reviewing and learning in this short time at the beginning of class. Great resource.
♥ This activity has come in handy so much for me this year! I love how it also gets students learning about how this applies to their lives and experiences. The post topics vary, which makes it more engaging for everyone! Thank you!
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR DOWNLOAD:
• 4 status updates for students to edit in task card format
• Detailed answer key in task card format
• Teacher notes which go over all of the edits with detailed explanations for all changes
HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE:
1. Social Media Slip Up of the Week (Bell Ringers):
Introduce one of the status updates to your class per week as bell ringers (the full resource lasts 45 weeks!) Everyone makes the edits on their own (or you can do it in groups or pairs). Then, you can go over the update together as a class (the full resource includes a Powerpoint).
2. Writing Centers:
Include the task cards at a writing center where students can choose updates to work on. Edits can be made on the task card or on their own paper.
3. Pair Work:
Give each pair of students a task card and have them complete it together. Then, each pair can present the status to the class and share what edits they made. The class can give further suggestions. Use the teacher notes or answer key to check their work!
4. Group Work:
Give a group of three or four students one of the task cards and have them come to an agreement about the edits to make and the rewritten update. The group can present the update to the class when they are finished and explain the changes they made.
