There are many fake text messages tools that you can use online, but certainly this one seems to be the best.
iFake Text Message is a tool that lets you create fake text messages with various customization options. You can choose the battery level and decide to show it or not, you can decide on the signal strength, name the network, choose the connection type. Moreover, you can write the exact time and decide on to show or not to show the Bluetooth, alarm or lock on the screen. And, there are many more features available. After customizing your screen, you can write your name and write your text messages. To add an answer, simply click on the + button and write you text again. When you are done, you can download it.
Children can make two characters from a book or two famous people text each other. They can create short poetry, practice a dialogue, or questions and answers. It can also be a good idea to use this tool to practice advice or suggestions.
I think this is a cool tool to practice writing activities with our students in a fun way. As our children love texting each other, this can be a fun tool to bring in the classroom.
