PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Start tweeting with paper in your classroom! Having a Twitter Wall in your classroom is a great way to connect with your students, create a community, and see where their thinking is at. It is also a fantastic way to show them how to appropriately use Social Media, instead of ignoring it and pretending it doesn’t exist.

Have your students "tweet" as bell ringers with how their feeling/life/emotions, about what they're learning in class, or use as exit slips. Get creative!

I created this product because I have decided to use it myself this year in my classroom. This is an elaborate twitter wall so please enjoy! Just Print and GO!

Goals:
-Introduce and Talk about Social Media in a safe, friendly way
-Have students learn how to use Social Media appropriately
-Create a community within your classroom in a creative way
-Use this to check in on your students learning, emotions, what’s going on in their world in a creative way

How To Use:
1) Build your Twitter wall and have all the elements set up in your classroom. I’ve included all the elements, including sign age and posters in this product.
2) Introduce your Twitter Wall to your class. Have them work through the About Social Media handout. Have them review the backside on Twitter's history where they will create their handle.
3) Have students create and color their Twitter Themed desk Name Tag. They will write their handle on this in addition to their name so everyone knows who is who. I would laminate these after they’re done for long use.
4) Show them how to use the Twitter Wall and When to tweet (show where you’ve put the “Tweet Forms” and talk about when and how you’d like your students to use them. I suggest having them tape up or pin up their tweet and you may want to have a roll of tape (Masking for easy removal) or push pins nearby).
5) For an extension you can use the Twitter Coloring as a name tag or art project or to string onto a banner... Endless choices and are great for a “When You’re Done” activity and to unify a theme in your class.

Just print this product and GO!
