These are my two favorite ways to use it so far, but like I said, there's no end to the opportunities!
Helloooo morning work! Have a screen shot of a conversation up on your screen and have the students correct it. This is also a good opportunity for kids to be reminded that text talk/online spelling and grammar isn't CORRECT! I worry about living in a world of people that wait for Siri to correct their misspellings!
Create fake conversations and have your students infer what the people are talking about!
Inference: A girl got a part in a play that she was rehearsing for.
Inference: A coach held practice at a time that he knew nobody could come.
Inference: A boy lost his lunch box.
Here is a short list of ways to use this website that I have come up with. What else can you add?!
Ideas for Teachers:
Mystery Reader Clues
Main Idea: What is the main idea of this conversation?
Summarizing: Summarize the conversation in your own words.
Ideas for Students:
Conversations between characters: what would these characters say if they were talking?
Conversations between animals or people to show understanding.
Studying vocabulary or topics: one student types a question, the other student types an answer.
Thanks for joining me for Teachers Talking Tech on Thursdays! See you next week!
