As a junior high teacher, I know (as I'm sure you do) that students would much rather type out a text message than pick up a pencil. Engage students of all ages in written expression with this fill-in-the-blank text message dialogue pack.
Including seven graphic organizers, these printable cell phone graphics mimic the look of a text message screen. Choose and print which style of screen you like best and allow your students to write their own dialogue.
There are a multitude of possible uses for these organizers across subject matter. In the ELA classroom, have students compare and contrast formal written language with informal text messaging, or provide copies for a writing learning center. In social studies or history, students could write a text message conversation between two historical figures. The open-ended graphics allow students to be creative with their writing, and they can decorate, color, or illustrate the page as well.
