Twitter

I stumbled across some 1st grade classrooms on Twitter the other day and decided to set up my own class account. I'm not yet sure how I want to go about using it, but I think it has some great possibilities. Do any of you use Twitter? If so, what do you use it for? If you're interested in following us, our name is descamps_grade1Thanks!Shannon Descampshttp://edublogs.misd.net/mrsdescamps/See More
