Twittering in Room 12

No, we don't have fancy smart phones or iPads . . . yet. We looped adding machine tape around the classroom. Making kind of a giant Twitter feed.

As I read from The Moon by Seymour Simon, kids wrote "tweets" or facts, that they were learning. When I turned the page they would shuffle the tape to their left and write more.

Everyone signed their "tweets" so we knew who was thinking what. Soon both sides of our twitter feed was full, before I had even finished reading the book.

Afterwords we went around and everyone read the tweets from others.
