They're cute. They're fun, sure! But are they just EXTRA?! Can they actually be useful in a classroom using acquisition driven instruction to build language proficiency? ABSOLUTELY! The possibilities are endless in fact! Let me show you what I've been experimenting with! I guarantee you'll walk away from this with your brain bursting with excitement from all of the ways you'll be able to make this an awesome extra learning tool for your students!
Hi, I’m La Maestra Loca
I have been hooked on creating Bitmoji classrooms and scenes for the last two weeks. It is absolutely "extra", addictive and I LOVE it! I have had lots of teacher friends ask me if it even worth investing the time if they're not useful for delivering input, and my answer is OH MY GOSH OF COURSE!!! The possibilities of using these in the proficiency based classroom are endless! I am SO excited to show you what I've been experimenting with so far!
