On the 9th day of Tech-mas, my Ed Techs shared with me
...a Google Doc emoji sto-ry.
Give your lessons a creative twist with emoji rebuses! You can make your own copy of this Wintertime Rebus Story Template for Google Docs. You can assign it to your students as-is, or customize it to fit your content area or grade level.
Emoji rebuses open a lot of creative possibilities for you and your students:
You can give your students a string of emojis as a narrative writing prompt.
Provide your students with a set of four emojis and ask them to compare and contrast.
Students can use emojis to annotate text according to your directions.
But you don't really need a template to use emojis in Google Docs. All of the emojis are available in the "Insert" menu by selecting "Special Characters..." You can hunt through the categories to find your favorite emojis, or you can use the keyword search function.
How might you use emojis in your content area or grade level? Let us know by leaving a comment below. And, speaking of leaving comments...
