2. Decide if you want the messages to be sent out as part of a larger campaign. For example, you could focus 1 month on Science & Math and post 4 tips each week from that category that align to each of the four age groups. Or you could send tips out leading up a particular event at the library that you want to promote.

3. Copy/paste the English text from the Facebook or Twitter tabs of this sheet. Each row is meant to be a single post.

4. Feel free to copy/paste the text from other languages in the same or a separate Facebook post. Facebook also automatically translates English text into the language your audience views your page, so it is up to you which translation you prefer. Twitter also automatically translates, which is helpful since you will not be able to post multiple translations in the same post due to word count. If you prefer our translations, feel free to post the same tip in different languages in separate tweets.

5. If you can, include a picture to boost views!

6. After posting, try following up a couple days or a week later with something like "Who tried @c4creativity 's tip this week? Post your thoughts or a picture of how it went, and be featured on our feed!"

FAQs
10
What kind of pictures should I use? Try and find pictures (with permission of course!) of children and adults actively engaged in hands-on, science, math, collaborative, physically active, or outdoor activities. Ideally, something that illustrates the key findings that align to Talk & Play, Science & Math, and Body & Brain. Use the pictures in Reimagining School Readiness position paper, the Promising Practices Guide, or the Case Studies for inspiration!
11
What hashtags should I use? Use specific hashtags like #[YourLibraryName] so people can search to find you. Use more general hashtags like #creativity or #schoolreadiness to join a larger conversation, and see how other organizations are doing similar work.

Do I need to post the translations provided? No. If one of your users views Facebook or Twitter in a language other than English, the English text of your post will automatically be translated into his/her language. Your users may also see an option to "rate this translation" and see the original English text, so that Facebook and Twitter can improve their translations.
