Learning with Twitter

This week, we helped out a class in Ohio who wanted to know what what people in other countries ate for lunch. We took pictures of our lunches and tweeted them to Ms Frazier’s class, who then put the pictures into their Voicethread.

We also used Twitter to pretend we were one of the characters in Little Red Riding Hood, and to tweet using that character’s “voice”. What would the wolf, or the huntsman, or the grandma say? Can you tell which character we were in the tweets below?

Once Upon a Time

Some real “characters” showed up in our classroom this week! Since we coming to the end of our fairy tale unit, the students took turns acting out some of the tales we’ve read together. It’s amazing to see the way hiding behind a mask can empower some of the more timid children.
