My most recent resource are these two great ebook packs! Both of these packs follow the colour wheel targeting key high frequency words for that colour of books. This resource has an ebook, word card task card and Seesaw activity links; all to help reinforce the learning of key high frequency words! The first one targets words from magenta and red; with the second targeting words from yellow.
This pack also comes with a task card for each word that students can use alongside the ebook. Students should listen to the word, say the word out loud, write the word in the air with their finger or trace around the word formation on their device screen; plus create the word at the end. There are some activity ideas for how to create the word like playdough, magnets, stamps, sand trays and links to Seesaw activities.
These ebooks will available for download free on itunes apple books! Until then, you can access the ebook links free here.
Or download the whole resource which includes the ebook, word task cards and Seesaw activity links!
Today I presented my second session at Ulearn 2019 around 'Using Seesaw within literacy and maths'. This session was a hands on session providing teachers with tips, resources and tutorials to use with getting Seesaw integrated into your classroom.
Today I did a 25 minute taster presentation on using Seesaw portfolios for assessment. This was a quick introduction on using skills, activities and fluency checks alongside or integrated into your assessment.

Today I am sharing the newly created Seesaw 'I can' statement poster progressions. These are great for students to help them work through different aspects of using Seesaw. Each of these is broken into three levels - beginner, proficient and advanced; to link into my already created student and teacher Seesaw progressions.
Last week I so incredibly fortunate to attend and present at the Digital Fluency Hui in Hawera, Taranaki. I delivered the keynote and four workshops around different areas. The aim being to build teacher competency and skill in anything digital; providing as much as I can with others!
I really wanted to share my presentations with you so here are the links to the workshops I ran. If you have any questions or want any further information please let me know.
Seesaw already has some great getting started guidelines that take teachers and students through a series of lessons to unpack each tool when beginning with Seesaw. Find the guides here.
I took those guides, and created some task cards that can align with those so students can learn about the Seesaw tools, follow specific instructions when using the tools to become confident users of Seesaw.
These task cards are free to download and use for your students. There are seven in total, that work through using the main tools when starting out: taking a photo, video, creating a drawing, writing note and writing a comment.
Download it from my teachers pay teachers store link here, or download the pdf below. Check out my other Seesaw task cards also.
Seesaw is my go-to favourite app! I love everything about Seesaw and have worked hard over the last few years to make many resources that teachers and students can use alongside Seesaw! Check them all out below, with links, downloads and freebies you can use in your classroom today!
All resources are able to be downloaded and used by students and teachers across the world. These are free to access on the above links. Please keep credit links on each resource and thank you to those who have helped create aspects of the resources.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about any of the Seesaw resources shared above.
This year I was working on implementing Seesaw with students and teachers and really wanted to set up some progressions to help make the implementation or use easier. The aim of these progressions were to show each level of user that a student and teacher could be with links to tools, comments, posting and blog. They work through three levels of progressions that students and teachers could be: beginner, proficient and advanced.
The best thing about these progressions is they are easily able to be used for both students and teachers. These could be printed off and displayed in the classroom and be referred to whilst students are using them. For teachers, these could be displayed in the staff room and be used as a form of reflection of assessment.
Download the pdfs of both below or click the links for online access.
Find the slide deck to these pre-made templates here. Simply make a copy for yourself or just download which slide you want to use. Upload it to Seesaw and create an activity with that for your students to complete.
Check out my other slides for use with Seesaw here.
