I am using this challenge to tell the story of my classroom this year. We have shared pictures of real estate math and technology use in the classroom. I followed BCPS and browsed their followers to find fellow BCPS educators to follow.
I will continue to use Twitter throughout the year to share the exciting things we are doing in the classroom.

With the Twitter Challenge I created a Twitter Account for my classroom. I started by using the account to Tweet about our recent unit centered around a Junior Great Book Story: Chestnut Pudding. In this Iroquois Folktale, a chestnut tree gives life through its magical chestnuts to a special grandmother and her son.
As we read, the children had questions about chestnuts, so we continued our research by completing a non-fiction reading passage found on The children were fascinated about the scientific research being done to save the American Chestnut Tree. They were surprised to find out that The American Chestnut Foundation is right here in North Carolina!
One of our students found that during World War II Anne Frank had a special connection to a chestnut tree located outside the window of her family’s hideout in Amsterdam. We enjoyed reading two great stories about Anne and her beloved chestnut tree. Our continued research lead us to find all of the locations in the United States where saplings of Anne Franks Tree have been planted to help us remember to see the good in the world.
Through Twitter we have connected with 1)The American Chestnut Foundation to see locations of REAL American Chestnut Trees and learn about new research and 2)#AnneFrankTree to see real time photos of the new saplings being planted.
