Do your kids have a problem using abbreviations or "texting" language when they are writing? Mine sure do!
I created this to address the issue of students using texting language in classwork assignments (including formal papers).
Students learn to translate texting language into both informal and formal language in this 4 page assignment.
I've done this 4 years running now and it seems to really get the kids attention because they are so used to texting and using incomprehensible speak on Facebook (I'm pretty tech savvy and up on the times and I STILL have no idea how to read the things they post on Facebook!).
