Product Description
Bring some FUN back into grammar by inviting students to imagine themselves as celebrities writing their own Tweets!

After students have learned about colons and semi-colons, have them practice writing two "Tweets", one using a colon and one using a semi-colon.
My middle school students LOVED this and especially enjoyed being able to create their own celebrity twitter handle (name) before writing their tweet.


I liked this assignment because it took ten minutes for me to easily see who in my class understood the concept of how to use semi-colons and colons. I didn't have a lot to grade, and students didn't have to complete 15+ practice problems. The kids were giggling as they made up their fake Twitter handles, and they didn't mind practicing this grammar concept!

The assignment is quick and can easily serve as a quick assessment, warm-up lesson, or grammar mini lesson!





This activity is meant to be STEP TWO after students have practiced and completed the assignment below:
