This unit was designed specifically to help middle school students navigate the complexities of social communication in the digital age! The Social Talk Emojis unit gives your students with social communication disorders structured practice with using emoji's while messaging their friends and classmates. This unit contains multiple interactive activities that can be used in your groups or individual sessions.
Emoji Decoder, Interactive Book: This book helps students learn what each emoji means and how to use it! This book is great for students who benefit from multiple choice constraints!
What Should I Text Back?: This activity gives your middle school students a chance to practice responding to text messages with emojis in a structured environment.Each cell phone has a hypothetical text message and the student needs to choose the appropriate emoji response from a field of four. This is perfect for students that have just started learning the concept.
Add the Emoij: This activity allows students to practice appropriately adding emojis onto their own texts. For this activity, students need to apply an emoji that is appropriate for their text message. This activity requires students to pick emoji's from a large field of options, much like in real life!
Expected or Unexpected: This activity is perfect for small groups. Your students will have fun using our cell phone themed expected or unexpected signs to rate if the emoji use is expected...or unexpected!
