Linking SeeSaw Activities to a Daily Journal or Checklist

I have seen this posted in other areas, but I really, really want to make sure SeeSaw sees this! 

As of right now, in order to link one activity within a daily journal or a checklist, you have to assign that activity.  This makes it impossible for a teacher to create these things in advance. If I want to be a week ahead on constructing these, I cannot have the assignments posted on their feed that early. Linking them is a great start and super important for remote teachers this year, but we have to find a way around the assigning it first. We need the student link to be available as we create them and before they are assigned to students so that we can be prepared!

  • If you have a paid account you can schedule Seesaw activities to post at a future date. After they are scheduled you can get the student link to it without them seeing it.

  • Micah - please please please explain in step by step detail how to do this!  We have the school level and not only is this not happening  but the links show up on the teachers end but it doesn't appear they are working on the student end.

  • When you go to assign an activity  first you need to select which class you are assigning it to.  Then before you hit assign on the bottom left corner in grey there is a box that allows you the schedule when your students receive it.  I hope this helps.

  • The problem is if you schedule and activity for say tomorrow at 9am, but I put the schedule up tonight the link will open up the activity, even though it is not yet assigned.

    So I want the kids to have the schedule in the morning, but I don't want the links to be live until the scheduled activity hits its scheduled time (because I want to talk about it first or whatever I just don't want then working on it before a certain time)

    I would prefer that if the activity hadn't hit its scheduled time it would say something like that activity is not yet available.  Otherwise I can't post my schedule to give a heads up without giving them access to activities that I don't want them to do until a certain time.

  • As a teacher, I would really like to schedule an Activity and it NOT show up in the students feed until the date that it is scheduled for. It is extremely confusing for the children to see something but not be able to open and complete the assignment.

  • I agree with the original poster.  I am a special education teacher who is providing instruction to students with moderate disabilities, and it would be great to be able to put all of their assignments on a daily agenda, but for them to NOT see all of the activities separately on their feed.  (At this time, if I am understanding correctly, I have to assign all of the activities to them first, which will cause them to show up on their feed, and then I can link the activities into the daily agenda).  But how confusing is that for a student to have a bunch of assignments listed on their feed, PLUS to have the assignments listed in the daily agenda.

    I have already had some students clicking in the activities and "attempting" them before I have even introduced them, which causes issues as I have to send the activity back or delete the submission, and it frustrates the students because they don't understand why they are getting the activity back.

  • If you schedule the activity first, then go to scheduled activities and open the assignment you can get the link.  You could schedule the activity to come out at the same time as the assignment it's embedded into. I also wish the activities could be linked without seeing it assigned.
