Social Media Plan for Reaching Elementary Parents Starting September 9
Racking your brain for a way to provoke meaningful conversations between parents and their elementary kids in less than 140 characters? Well, rack no more!
Below, you will find everything you need to cue parents this week through every major social media outlet from Twitter to Pinterest (so you can focus your brain power on posting the really important stuff—like that picture you just took of your cat dressed up like a chicken). And if you missed our first post explaining what all this is, take a second to get up to speed by clicking here!
If Pampers and Goldfish are more your speed, check out our First Look blog for the social media plan to connect parents with preschoolers: http://orangeblogs.org/firstlook

This week we are supplying you with 6 tweets, 3 Facebook posts with Facebook Timeline photos, 2 pictures for Instagram, and 2 articles to pin on Pinterest. Feel free to use these posts however you wish. Want to get a little crazy and swap Monday’s tweet with Wednesday’s? Go right ahead! Feel like posting a different picture to Instagram? We don’t mind! You can simply copy and paste the words below or add a little flare of your own to any and all posts. These posts should start going out on Monday August 12th and follow this social media plan. If you have any questions, suggestions for content or an exceptionally cute picture of your cat, please share in the comment section below this post. Until next week, Happy Tweeting!
Facebook: Possible Timeline Photos for September:
- Monday: Ready or not, here we go!
- Thursday: Sometimes we get thrown in situations we simply aren’t ready for but that doesn’t mean we can back down and not do the right thing. So this week, gather your family together and have a little impromptu fun making up stories together. Here’s how: Sit in a circle and choose one person to begin. That person starts the story by saying one sentence. The person to the left makes up the next sentence of the story and so on until the story comes to a natural conclusion. Have fun making up as many stories as you want without being able to prepare for any of the hilarious twists and turns told by your family members!
- Friday: How can a do-rag make you daring? Just watch MC Haggis and Shamus McFamous show you how! http://youtu.be/JZA2LMisP0M
