How are you using Seesaw in your class?
I’m using Seesaw as much as I can and thinking of different activities to use it more and more. So far we’ve done weekly entries for parents to know what we think is our BEST work, guided reading formative assessments (take a photo of a page in our book and identify story elements), math workstations (prove work).
What is an activity you've done recently that turned out well?
Guided reading assessments – take a photo of the book we’re reading and identify the characters, setting, problem and solution. The students circle the answers they can and then type and/or record the other answers.
What is your students' favorite thing about using Seesaw?
Having their parents see their work! They love it!
What is one piece of advice you'd give to a teacher who's just starting with Seesaw?
Jump in! It’s a great way to get parent involvement and buy in to what you are doing. Students tend to do better work when they know it’s going to be seen by someone other than just the teacher.
