A Facebook "Wall" for my Classroom

Update 10/18/12: This post has been moved to my *NEW* special ed blog, Breezy Special Ed. Head on over to see this post on A Facebook Wall for my Classroom.
Facebook in the Classroom - status updates 


  1. Awe, some of the messages on there are so cute! Especially the one about the birds :)

  2. This is such a great idea!! I bet your kids love it, and what a cute classroom too :)

  3. what an awesome idea to integrate today's technology in the classroom! thanks again for linking it up!

    also, i'm your newest follower! don't know how i wasn't following you before! :)

  4. Cute, cute! I like the way you have them write directly on the strips. Since mine is made with a postermaker and hung in the hallway, I have my kids use the sentence strips which I cut to fit in width. I wish I could just let them use a dry erase marker but then busy fingers in the hallway would end up rubbing off the messages!

  6. I'm actually not a big fan of this idea. :( I think that you should be teaching your class to stray away from facebook and other social media sites and to concentrate more on getting back to good old fashioned communications - like pen pals and things like that...

    This is just my opinion. As an ex-facebook user, I couldn't be happier and more productive (in soooo many ways) since I deactivated my fb account.

    1. Thanks for your opinion. My students have special needs, many of them with autism, and don't know how to carry on a conversation. They might be able to answer questions, but need heavy prompting in order to ask a related question or make a related comment. The facebook wall is a way to practice these types of communication at a much slower pace.

      Obviously, we work on social skills and communication skills ALL of the time as well. And we have done some activities where my students have written letters to sports teams, but I don't think they will be writing many letters in "real life", so I try to incorporate activites that hopefully they would be able to continue outside of school as well. :)
