Emoji use requires inferencing, topic maintenance skills, pragmatic language skills, and more. Middle and high schoolers love texting, so this deck is both motivating and practical! Practice pragmatic language skills by having students read casual text conversations and choosing the reply with the emoji that fits best. This requires students to interpret the mood/tone of the conversation, pick an on-topic response, and practice the intricacies of text communication!
