Some of the grade one students' work from SeeSaw.
Well it has definitely been the most different school year I have ever experienced since I started teaching in 1997. The children have now been off over a month. Its been challenging times for us all. Grade 1 has a Seesaw account where the majority of our assignments are posted and completed. I am really happy to see that seven students have managed to log on to the site and a few children have completed quite a lot of assignments. I am very pleased to see the work, videos and voice recordings. I excitedly check Seesaw daily to see what my students have completed for me. The other main site we are using is the Reading A- Z kids or RAZ kids app. It is an excellent sources of levelled just right books for the kids to read. Assignments are based on your child’s reading level. Seesaw and RAZ kids will be our main apps used. I have also provided prodigy and squiggle park for children to explore. I am happy to meet any student online for a meet- for any questions or just to chat and connect and remind them I am here and I miss them. We can and will get through this together .
