    Week One - Introduce Wallwisher to your class at the Smartboard. Allow a few students to come up to the board to add a sticky to the wall. After a few students do some examples, send the site to the whole class. Invite the class to add stickies independently to the wall. After the class is finished, bring them back to Smartboard to view the wall with everyone's stickies.
    Week Two - Allow students to add stickies if they did not have a chance to last week. Then bring students together to write a blog post about their experience creating the wall together. After writing the post together, invite them to share their wall with their families and add more animal stickies.
    Example: Mrs. Smith's ABC's

    As a follow-up to Character Counts Project:
    Create a wall for students on Wallwisher.com for them to share "Why Character Counts for Us!" Use this as a culminating activity for students as they finish their Character Counts project in Kidspiration. I did a quick two minute tutorial on how to add stickies to the wall at the beginning of class when I knew students would be wrapping up their Character counts project. They asked for the link when they finished.
    Example: Why Character Counts for Us!
