Emoji Writing

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Are words the only way to communicate? Not in 3rd grade! Mrs. Mueller shared with students a project called “Emoji Writing.” Using Google Docs, third graders answered questions about themselves with emojis. Mrs. Mueller instructed students on how to find emojis and insert into a document. As a class, students brainstormed ways to use emojis: story elements, summaries, exit tickets, character traits, and mindset. Needless to say we 💜 emojis!!
