Hello everyone. It's the 21st century. We are stranded in a post-literate future. How to teach writing to your elementary students when their brains are daily being re-wired by Instagram, Twitter, and gaming consoles?
Well, Peggy Reimers at TCEA has a good idea. Emoji's are a language that kids speak these days. Use Emoji's to get students to start making up stories they can write about.
The Emoji Writing Prompt is a Google Sheet that allows you to create a number of graphical icons that will inspire students to write. Please go to the TCEA page for more details.
