This editable Twitter template is perfect for reviewing what was taught that day. It makes students think about what they learned, so when they get home and face the dreaded question, “So, what did you learn today?” students will hopefully have an answer ready!
Not only is it editable, but it comes in both color and black and white to save on ink. There are two templates – one with a space for pictures, and one without. Files are in a zipped folder.
I plan on using it periodically at the end of class to have students write about what we did that day. There’s also a place for students to draw a picture from the day’s lesson. In the “trending” section, I will have my students list any new vocabulary words from the day’s lesson.
It can be sent home periodically, or kept in a journal. I’m planning on putting mine out on desks for Open House (elementary level) so parents can see what their kids have been learning.
Other ways of using this file include…
- Writing definitions and pictures of vocabulary words, or using vocabulary words in a sentence.
- Writing opinions about books read in class or at home, or a very brief summary of the book.
- Describing the important contributions of historical people, such as presidents, famous scientists, etc and drawing a portrait of that person
- Writing sentences and underlining certain parts of speech, such as nouns, verbs, etc (instead of putting the date on the short line, they could write in the part of speech they are identifying).
- As “warm fuzzies” – aka compliments from classmates.
Those are just a few ideas I thought of within a couple minutes – I’m sure you could think of many more that would be suitable for your subject and grade level. If you think of other ways of using this template in class, feel free to share in the comments!
