Have students write a collaborative poem or story using Twitter, IM, Edmodo or Facebook. This way, authors can contribute one word, one line, or several paragraphs.

Teachers have so little time to plan as it is so we have to make sure that the time they DO have is sacred and protected. After you make the signs, promise your fellow teachers you will honor them and keep away from others who are engaged in the important work of designing lessons, creating adaptations, and solving problems.

    There seems to be less and less time for this very important part of our day! The sign will work to keep everyone focused on the tasks at hand.
