Explore Twitter Board, Twitter Bulletin Boards, and more!

Twitter door- have a laminated strip for every child and they get time to update status about something they learned, liked or happened during school that day!

Texting Door- Students can text about what is happening. There are 30 laminated sentences strips so everyone (including me) has a place to "text" on the door.

Great back-to-school class assignment - create a "social media profile" including information about themselves and "status updates" from their summers

Students tweet every morning when they  enter the classroom.  Use laminated pieces of white construction paper and dry erase markers!  Great beginning!

Divide the inside of a file folder into boxes that are slightly larger than small sticky notes. Write students' names in the boxes in alphabetical order, one name per box. Whenever you want to make a note about a student's progress, jot the information on a sticky note and then place it in the appropriate box. Periodically move the sticky notes to students' assessment folders. You'll have valuable information at your fingertips when it's time to prepare report cards.

Frame a class list and use a dry erase marker on it whenever you want to mark off names. This could save SO MUCH PAPER AND TIME. I wonder if I could fit four cores worth of students' names on it, or if I'd need multiple frames?

ELA in the Middle - One of the best ELA blogs I've read.  Although it notes the information is for middle school, the majority of the resources on this site are excellent for elementary as well.  Well worth your time to peruse this treasure!!
