After 4 days of school, we have 20 followers!
To encourage students to tell their family members to follow us, I am sending home a "feather" thank you for following us gift! I hope it will get more to join!
I also made a How-To set up a twitter acct! This way parents and teachers can follow the steps to join our account! Many who said "I don't have a twitter acct" now are following us!!
I was annoyed by the image of Justin Bever asking me to follow him. So today I chose to follow Mo Willem's Pigeon and Eric Carle. Now other book authors and characters are suggesting we follow them, instead of Justin Bever! Much better!! I think I'll let the class write (or tweet) who they think we should follow before picking anymore to follow.
I was able to post at least 1 tweet at the end of each day. So far, 47 tweets sent!
Now I want to research how other teachers use twitter.
Here's a video I found:
I like how he says that twitter is "a paperless way to share your thoughts".
