This is just a quick introduction activity I do at the beginning of the year to get students ready for writing. Since students LOVE to text, I give students the opportunity to figure out what the texting abbreviations mean. They love this quick activity. Afterwards, we go into a discussion about how it is okay to write like this when you text, it is not how we write in the classroom. I always have kids that like to write lol or the number 4 for the word for, and this is a fun way to let them know which written language to use in school!
