Dear TK Families,
You can now add items from home to your child’s Seesaw journal. Like everything with Seesaw, it’s easy! Download the Seesaw class app, scan the QR code I sent home on Friday, and with a couple of taps, your item is added. It’s a great way to connect home and school learning and you’ll end up with a wonderful digital scrapbook for your child’s TK year.
I will be available after school on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week to walk you through the steps. Plan to stay for a few minutes and try it out.
It’s time to save your child’s digital portfolio of work that is on Seesaw. Here is the link with the “how it works” info.
Don’t put it off! I know you want to preserve this precious time of their lives. If you are not sure what to do, I will be available after school so we can figure it out together.
Almost all of you are now connected on your child’s Seesaw portfolio. I hope you find it as informative and delightful as I do. We have been busy bees in class lately. Be sure to check out our latest videos on our class blog (blogs.egusd.net/petuya)
I would also like to invite you to view our first voicethread of the year. Follow this link https://voicethread.com/share/7505164/ and you will find an online example of our work that you can see and hear. VoiceThread is similar to Seesaw in that I can post student work and you can view it and make positive comments. VoiceThread is different in that you are able to see the work of the entire class. I encourage you to sign up for a free account at voicethread.com so you will be allowed to leave comments for multiple students and encourage our class.
We have been very busy learners this trimester and are excited to show off our work on Tuesday, April 1st. We hope you are able to stop by for a tour of our room. Our door will be open from 4:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. We have arranged for a special feature for this event. If you have an iPhone or iPad, download “Aurasma”, a free app, and bring the device with you. You will be amazed! You’ll have to wait until Tuesday to find out what we have planned. 😀
