I confess. I began my teaching career using hand-drawn smiley faces. When email prohibited me from including a smiley face in my communications, I keyed in my own :+). Since emojis rolled onto the scene, I can express a wide range of emotions in my messaging—yet what if I choose an emoji that I think signals joy but others think it signals an enthusiastic burp? Oh my!
Let’s have a bit of fun and pretend that I’m your grade-level or age-group colleague. You’ve sent me a message asking how my day went. I send back the emoji pictured. From a teacher’s perspective, what kind of day do you think I’ve had? Can you put words with this emoji?
Can’t wait to hear!

Hmmm what to get into next
