Yesterday I ran the second of my online PLD around Seesaw. This time is was focusing on Seesaw activities, explaining how to find them, save them and create them for yourself. This was modelled via the zoom online recording and recorded for those of you that might not have been able to make it. I also shared a whole lot of recording templates and seesaw activity templates than can be used for creating Seesaw activities. Check out the online recording below and the slide deck attached at the bottom for yourself.
Over the holidays I will be running some online Zoom PLD to help share the skill and knowledge I have with Seesaw. I know we are all using our own different online platforms for home learning; but Seesaw has great opportunities to be used at home with learners. These session are all free to attend and have a slide deck free that you can use to guide your learning for afterwards. These are also recorded if you can't make the time or session planned.
Just want to watch a recording? Find it below.
This week I did a facebook live video and there were lots of questions about software, apps and things for home learning. A few questions in particular were around Google calendar and appointments, so I created these two quick videos to help with those.
With school being closed across the world, Seesaw is a great way of engaging with students and parents. Seesaw has updated to include home learning codes - a way to have students use their already created Seesaw classes from home. They can upload evidence and complete work from home and share it with their teacher! You can comment and interact with your students like usual in this huge time of change.
Check out this quick video below on how to access and download those home learning codes.
The third in the 'let's practice our target words' ebook is now live - targeting blue words (from the ready to read series and colour wheel). This book targets blue words with an interactive ebook that shows students how to form the word they are focusing on, opportunities to hear the word and then a formation of the word for students to trace with their finger, or make in the air.
This resource pack is available on my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. The ebook is available to download for free from apple books - but this does not include the task cards.
These stamps are all fun recognition stamps that I put on student work. This could be on any curriculum area and for any piece of work. I love these stamps because they are fun, different, better than just writing your name as a teacher. And what kids don't like a fun stamp!
I love a great word game/activity that increases student word knowledge and quick recall. I am always looking for new ways that engage students and this was definitley one of them. Last week I was scrolling on facebook and saw something similar happening in a classroom. I then created my own activity that my students could complete in class to practice this!
