Step 5: Search for images

Such as whiteboards, wall hangings, bookshelves, computer desks, etc. Anything you’d want in your digital classroom! Select the image you want and click “insert.”

Tip: When you’re searching for items, include the word “transparent” after the item you’re searching so that your image won’t have a white background.

To insert these images below into my Bitmoji classroom, I searched “whiteboard transparent,” “bookshelves transparent,” “plant transparent,” and “corkboard transparent” in the search engine.

Step 7: Personalize your classroom by writing a message on the whiteboard!

Click insert > text box and fit it around your whiteboard. Type in your message.

Step 8: Continue the personalization by adding your favorite read alouds to the book shelves.

You’ll need to search the book covers in the regular google image search in a new tab, then copy and paste them into the Bitmoji classroom.

Step 9: Make your Bitmoji classroom interactive by adding links to items around your room.

For example, if you want to link a book on your shelf to a Youtube read aloud, you would first find that read aloud on YouTube and copy the URL. Then, click on the image that you’d like to link (like a book on the shelf) > click on the hyperlink icon > paste link into the box. Tada! Now when viewers click on the book, they will be brought to the read aloud.

Another idea: You can also link the image of your Bitmoji to an All About Me page!

Step 10: Once your Bitmoji classroom is beautified and linked up, share it with families

Click share in the top right corner > ensure share settings are set to “anyone with this link can view” > click “copy link” > paste the link into a new tab and delete the end of the URL from “edit” until the end > insert the word “present” instead > copy the new URL and share this link with families!

Changing the URL to say “present” instead of “edit” will force viewers to only see your classroom in present mode.
