Social Media Plan for Elementary Parents starting October 28

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 like a mouse). 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: https://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 October 14th 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!

  • Thursday: One of the most valuable commodities in life is your education. So who better to honor this month than the person who gives you your education: your teacher? Put a little time and effort into showing your teacher—or teachers—just how valuable they really are! Ingredients: Muffin tin, 1 piecrust, 2 granny smith apples, 1/8 cup sugar, ¼ teaspoon apple pie spice, 1 tablespoon melted butter How to: Peel, core, and thinly slice apples into wedges. Toss the apples with sugar and spices. Cut the piecrust with a large circle cookie cutter or water glass. The circles should be larger than the muffin tin cups (6 circles total). Press piecrust into 3 of the muffin cups. Fill each crust with apple mixture. Use the remaining 3 piecrust circles to cover each pie and press around the edges to seal. Cut three slits in the top of each pie and brush the top with melted butter. Bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes. Let pies cool before placing them in a cupcake liner and delivering them to your teacher!
