But never fear! I whipped up this introduction and very surface level peek into some ways Seesaw and numeracy can go together! In the holidays I will run a deeper level PLD with insight into activities; but this can get you through until then! Seesaw has opportunities to document, create, share and reflect for both teachers and students with their learning. I love the way that it can make it easier for both teachers and learners.
View the slides and watch the recording below to see a little bit more of how you can use Seesaw with numeracy! Find links to freebie templates and handouts plus other PLD recordings too on the slides below!
Find the links to all the activities on the Google doc below. These have the two pdf links and also the Seesaw activity link!
Each week I share a Seesaw activity that my kids use in class. I use Seesaw a lot but want to showcase more of what you can do and provide you with freebie links if you love what you say!
Have a look at the pictures below and click on the links to find the activities for your Seesaw!

Today I updated my Seesaw student and teacher progressions. These were created awhile ago to use as goals, progressions and a resource teachers and students can use when implementing Seesaw. It covers three different levels of progressions: beginner, proficient and advanced. There are five areas to the progressions:
These can be displayed in your class, used for formative assessment of students using Seesaw or to help teachers see how they are using it, to build to an advanced level of use.

Today I presented at Ulearn2020. It was really different this year being a completely online course and I ran a presentation called 'Get Sweet with Seesaw'. It was an introductory session to Seesaw, unpacking four key ways that Seesaw can be used with students and in your classroom.
The four key themes were:
It gave examples of what those themes meant for use with Seesaw, how it is represented in the classroom and then there was some play-exploration time for teachers to use the tools in practice. I find the best way to learn is via hands on learning opportunities and really value learning by using Seesaw.

Seesaw Cheat Sheets
Seesaw cheat sheets
This resource pdf contains all of my Seesaw cheat sheets. Each made to help teachers, parents and students navigate around specific Seesaw tools. These are scattered around my website and Google Drive; but I thought it would be better to put them into one easy to download bundle.
This bundle contains 23 cheat sheets:
I love all the new updates that Seesaw is making to continue to meet the needs of our learners and our wants as teachers. The multiple recording tool now makes it easy to create interactive and multi-purpose activities for all year levels! This is a great way to gain a snapshot of what the students are thinking and see exactly what they are doing in their learning.
These listen and write maths activities allow students to first listen to the recording of me saying a number; then write it down in the space next to it. There are four pre-made ones that cover numbers to 10, 20, 100 and 1000. Students can listen as many times as they need to, to figure out the number.
These can be used for formative assessment, number hot spots, summative assessment or even fun maths activities!
Find the links to all four Seesaw activities for yourself on this link here!
This other resource which I created are these progressions for student and teachers to use - to move from a beginner level to an advanced level. Easy to follow and shows the user how they can improve each time. A great classroom prompt for your classroom. Download the pdfs below.
With New Zealand going back into lockdown, many teachers are back to using distant or online learning to keep the learning happening. Part of the first lockdown we had here, I shared info on how to create your own sticker books and stickers for Seesaw and motivational rewards. These can be updated each day or based on the activities students complete and be a way of keeping students involved or interested in their learning.
I have created a video below on how to find and access past Seesaw sticker books; with links to how to create your own sticker book using my template and sticker templates.
This second video is of the amazing new update to Seesaw! You can now link directly to Seesaw activities for students to complete without having to go through the activity portal. Before it was hard to get students to complete activities online by simply talking about where to go, how to access it and using visuals as prompts.
Now you don't need that - you can generate the student link and share it with them directly. They get taken straight to the activity to complete and then can fill it in! So easy and handy. Check out my video showing you how to do it!
This is a three part activity where they can use the video to record themselves. Of course they can use other tools too but the video tool is a great way to capture students, their thinking and emotions whilst sharing or reflecting.
