The other day my husband said, "I just don't get this Facebook thing." I laughed and said, "I don't get it either, but I'm trying!" It's the way the world communicates now, and these ideas will motivate your students to do nonfiction writing.

Facebook (Ruth Lefko )

Take two boxes and write "Facebook In Box" on one and "Facebook Out Box" on the other. Provide children with scrap paper, pencils, and markers. Children fold a sheet of paper in half and draw their face or a picture on the front. Inside they write a note to the teacher or a friend and place it in the "In Box." The messages are delivered and then the teacher or friend write a reply and place it in the "Out Box." 



Class Facebook (Laura Caudle)
Take the children’s pictures and make a class facebook. Run off a copy for each child. Use it for writing messages to friends, name songs, etc.
