Tweeting Tigers

We started to use Twitter this week in our classroom as a resource for information and as a way to connect globally! The students and I are working together to become digital citizens in the wide world of technology! We've been tweeting back and forth about the Olympics with Cari Sturch our curriculum coordinator. She came by and visited us today. We are also using twitter for sight word recognition! Here are a few pictures from our Twitter experience this week!
