Back to School Tweets



In Chicago we start school with our students the week of Labor Day so our first week is always 4 days long. To build excitement for the new school year each day I release a different Twitter prompt for our students and teachers to respond to. Past examples include: what are three things you love about Coonley? What are you looking forward to learning this year? What does your teacher need to know in order for you to be successful this year? What is one thing you learned this summer? For our teachers that already use Twitter they respond directly to the prompt and tag us. Those that don’t use the platform still contribute! Many will give students post it notes, use their whiteboards, index cards, etc. to respond to the prompt. The teachers will then snap a picture and send it to me to post for them. This not only allows our parents a sneak peak into our classrooms but also our teachers some talking points about responses they receive. Each year more teachers join Twitter to be a direct part of the action. Check out some examples:
