Seesaw in Second

Last year, I spent the first 2/3 of the year teaching remotely.  And while I still got to teach my 3rd and 4th grade, I really missed teaching the littles!  It was SO much fun finally being back with 2nd graders, and even more fun, introducing them to Seesaw!

When they were in first grade, much of the posts that were made were done by or with the teacher.  (It was a lot of extra work on the teacher's part!)  This year, second graders are en route to becoming masters of their own Seesaw!

The first part of this journey involved learning how to take a selfie (because despite all the tech time younger kids have, some skills still need teaching) and resizing it properly to fit in a specified shape (remember: always stretch from the corners, no giraffe or hippo photos!)  They also learned how to use the drawing tools.  Next up we will explore shapes and the video camera, before practicing taking pictures of written work to add to our Seesaw journals.

I love how easy Seesaw is to use, and integrate, into everything school.  And I love how the kids are so adept at using their resources to complete their work!  These second graders are well on the road to becoming Seesaw Masters that can show off their learning in a few clicks or snaps of their iPads!
