Mary Clark's curator insight, November 28, 10:51 AM

I'm sure if I share this with my students, their response will be, "Then why should we bother searching for images that are free to use or share? We're not even going to be making money on our projects!" Interesting point, and one that would make a great research or debate topic.

Fiction & Non-Fiction Twitter Tweet Common Core Activity: Use the Twitter Concept to Make Connections to the Text


OK, I have to say first of all I HATE the term "Twitter Tweet!" which reminds me of some out of touch grownup saying things like "FaceSpace" or "MyBook" or the non ironic use of The Internets --


Whew! That being said - this reminds of my Tweet me a Book Review lesson and it's really CUTE! Combined together it could be a super fun activity!

Halloween Activity - Trick AND Treat Looking for a fun and educational way to celebrate Halloween in your classroom? Then, you'll love the activities in this
GwynethJones's insight:

Looking for a fun and educational way to celebrate Halloween in your classroom? Then, you’ll love the activities in this resource that give your students a trick AND treat.

In this resource you’ll find a “Halloween Fun” activity. This one is the ‘TRICK’. In this activity students need to read the instructions very carefully. However, most students do not read the entire set of directions before beginning (that’s the trick). That means that students will follow the directions to create a Halloween drawing and complete a figurative language activity before they realize that they only needed to do the first 2 steps of the 16 step activity.
