Get students excited about reading when they follow KidderLit on Twitter. Everyday they post the first line of a young adult or children's book. The trick is that they don't tell you what the book is or who the author is. A research project perhaps or a challenge between groups, classes or schools? You can also limit the age groups and/or genre of the books that are chosen. Have students develop messages as historic or fictional characters might have communicated in 140 character tweets - "Historical Tweets" Create an account that only students access and use it to recommend books. Keep kids reading through the summer. Students will need to be creative in "hooking" their peers to read in only 140 characters. A new spin on the old cumulative story. Start with you posting a story starter and then use TwitterFall to have students add their part to it. How can school librarians provide technology support for the third grade reading guarantee?
