Social Media Plan for Elementary Parents starting January 20

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). 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

Or if you are surrounded by boy bands and learners permits, try our social media plan for connecting parents and students at: http://orangeblogs.org/xp3students

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 January 20 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!

  • Monday:  Yesterday, we learned that God says some pretty wise stuff.

  • Thursday: You may think the library is a nice, quiet place to take a nap or where you teacher makes you sit during detention. But did you know every library is filled from top to bottom with all kinds of knowledge and you have access to all those books for free? Really, when you think about learning something new, what better place than a library? There’s even an entire section with “how to” books. You know, like, How to Draw a Dragon or How to Gut a Fish. So this week, take your family to the library right around the corner and either work together or race to see if you can find the following items:
    • The funniest “How To” book
    • A book about ligers
    • A book about the circus
    • Biggest book
    • Smallest book
    • A book by an author with your first or last name
  • Friday:  What if God chose to use someone other than you to shape a defining moment in your child’s life? http://orangeparents.org/parent-link-live/
