Back To School with Bitmoji


I swear to you, yet again, dear reader, that I am NOT a paid spokesperson for Bitmoji! In fact, they haven't even answered, commented, acknowledged, or even liked ANY of my Tweets or Instagrams or blog posts where I've mentioned them. I am just a total fangirl.


A lonely neglected ignored (by them!) fangirl. Wow, that sounded pathetic & needy. Truth hurts.

But here I am again sharing something NEW that Bitmoji has brought out that I think is pretty cool for teachers! W00t!

They've created, just in time for Back to School, NEW Education themed cartoons.

With these new graphics, you can make classroom door signs, positive behavior or badge programs, run off on self-adhesive stickers for easy cute student feedback or add to your SMS Canvas messages & emails home!

You can download the Bitmoji and then add your name using PicMonkey. I've blogged before about how much I LOVE PicMonkey. (Still, not on their payroll - just a fangirl, but at least they like my Tweets now and then! They've even sent me some neat swag to give out when I keynote EdTech conferences....Unlike [cough cough] Bitmoji  #SoBitter)

If you don't have (or want Photoshop - because it's HARD!), PicMonkey is your best bet. And for some things, PicMonkey is even better! AND, it's so worth the Royale pay every year!

But these are so cute, I thought they would be really fun for ....

So, grab and download them while you can! Why? Some Bitmoji's go away. Not all of them, but usually seasonal and special topic ones. That's why I'm glad I grabbed this while I could. Even though it has my old hair.

Geeky, I know. But I'm glad I got it!  And this....


Also, some of these are from when Bitmoji did not build in a transparent background. Some, I've had to tweak myself with Photoshop Elements. Yes. I am that much of a nerd. Movie related Bitmoji's come and go.


So, when you see a super cute Book of Morman Bitmoji, or one that's either seasonal, topical, meme-tastic, or time-sensitive grab it while you can! Because tomorrow? It could be gone.


OK, maybe the Zoolander one I didn't need. But still....funny!

These Star Wars ones are still available, grab 'em while you can!


Easiest way to grab and save these? With the handy Chrome extension!

Using Bitmoji I created for my teachers this year a GSuite preso to customize Teacher Classroom Door signs. Some of my teachers have already jumped on the Bitmoji bandwagon, like Mr. Ewell here!

Some of my other cool teachers already had Bitmoji's to add to it, and they did! When needed, I helped! Feel free to Copy and customize this for your peeps!


I hope this helps! Have a Good First Week at School!



Also, have a great school year!



LOL OK, that might just be a bit much. My Dad uses that ALL the time!


He cracks me up, I'm still tickled that my 70 something parents have and use Bitmoji's! 


But then again, both my parents do like to use their technology. And I can take NO credit for it! Between classes at the Apple store and just being dang determined and smart they've taught themselves all their owntech skills. It makes me so proud of them! I also say sometimes to my staff who are as "experienced" as I am or closer to my parents age, if they can, you can!
Your Turn! 
What's your favorite Bitmoji? Do you use them in your classroom? In your School Library? Do you secretly HATE them? Any suggestions I missed?
