Assigning Activities for Groups

I would love to be able to assign differentiated work to a group of students without having to have multiple classes. If we could make little sub groups to then quickly assign something too would be amazing!

Right now I'm hybrid and have an "A Class" and a "B Class" - I have them as one class to be easier to manage posts and communication also if we go full remote or can return in full I just have the one class.  I'd love to be able to assign things to portions of kids without having to sift through the list.

  • I would LOVE to be able to have groups within my class because right now I have to click on each student who needs the activity individually.  So time consuming.

  • Agreed! I was coming here to say the exact same thing. Right now, my workaround is to have different icons for my A kids and B kids. However, this would be ideal!

  • Groups would be amazing. Such a time saver too.

    This is something that teachers at my school constantly ask me about too.

    If we had the option for groups, it would mean the right students always get the appropriate tasks assigned to them.

  • I totally agree. I came to post the same exact thing.

    I have four Reading groups and 3 Maths groups. All groups require different activities in order to differentiate work to their level. I also try to set at least two activities per group each week on Seesaw.

    When I'm assigning tasks I find and select at least 14 separate activities a week all up. Then I go through and then have to manually select each students name for each group for each activity. Often I have to flick back and forward to my planning doc to remember who is in each group. 

    It would be SO much easier and such a time saver to just select the activity and select which group it's for.

  • I came to ask for the same feature. We have groups of students in our classes to offer differentiated instruction. Having the ability to assign activities to each group BY GROUPS (and not individually) is really a huge time saver. Now we would have to read through, search, and click on each student. Reading A-Z has this feature (see below) and it truly makes assigning group work a breeze. Please creating grouping for us!
