Download Your Child’s Seesaw Portfolio

Just one more day of TK! Now that is hard to believe. But the calendar is correct.

So here is a final assignment for you. Follow the link below to learn how to save your child’s Seesaw Portfolio from this year. The steps are laid out very clearly at I don’t want you to miss taking ownership of your child’s work. It will be their digital yearbook from TK.

I have fallen behind in posting photos, so don’t download before July! I don’t want the students to be shortchanged on the memories.

Adios, mi amigos!

Dear TK Families,

What a year it has been! It has been my great joy to have been your child’s TK teacher. How lucky I am to have this job! I get to introduce young children to the school environment and ignite a spark to their imagination and joy of discovery every day. Thank you for that privilege.

I am deeply humbled by your generous support of my efforts to integrate technology in meaningful ways for the students. I have placed an order for a set of iPad 4s and I will be ordering a couple more Ozobots soon because of your donations. You folks ROCK!

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind and I haven’t been able to finish posting some student work. I will get to it later this month. (After I get back from my cruise to Alaska!)

Did you know that you can actually download a .zip archive of your child’s Seesaw journal. It will include all the photos, video, and audio from your child’s journal. It is a wonderful way to keep a virtual scrapbook of your child’s TK year.

Follow this link to the directions: and download by August 1st so you don’t lose access to those precious memories.

With joy and gratitude,
Mrs. P

PS: If you have enjoyed the experience with Seesaw, please encourage all of your child’s teachers to contact me to learn how to get it started.

Farewell, My Dear Friends

Dear Kindergartners,

I am so very proud of you! You have worked hard and learned so much in Kindergarten. It is hard to believe that our year together is ending. How did the days go so quickly?

We will always have happy memories of our online projects, iPads, field trips, Big Buddies, gardening, and so much more. Of course, you can always look on my blog to find links to our photos and VoiceThreads to enjoy again and again.

I have truly loved being your teacher. I hope that you will invite me to your high school and college graduations. It would be an honor to celebrate with you. Now, I must remind you of three important things to do in your life: Travel to faraway places. Live by the sea. Make the world more beautiful.
