Writing in Every Way We Know

      As we introduce our mythology topic to a new group of older students we took on a different way to get them writing. We started a classroom Twitter feed for the kids to “post” their thoughts, questions, comments, and inquiries about our new topic. We even took profile pictures for the kids to personalize their posts to our feed. The kids really took to the idea and have had a blast writing tweets and making up their own hashtags. Some students have even started making Twitter names for the gods and goddesses.
