***Updated 8/14! Challenges 1-7 are ready for you to assign to your class! Just click, add to your Seesaw library, and assign to your class!***

Do you use Seesaw in your classroom? These nine fun, Beginning of Year Challenges will have your students creating and sharing in Seesaw with minimal prep!

Make sure to check out the the Seesaw Challenges Bundle and save!

These challenges are perfect for the beginning of the school year when you are introducing procedures and staff members at your school! They are also perfect if you are introducing Seesaw to your students for the first time! (If you are just getting started with Seesaw, check out this blog post!) The Challenges will give students a chance to create, explore, and share in Seesaw. You can also use these Challenges just for fun, at any time of the year!

The only reason I call them “Challenges” is because it seems to be motivating for students when we can them challenges. ;) They are basically nine tasks, or activities that the students can complete within Seesaw.

There are nine challenges included in this pack, and everything you need to get your students going first thing tomorrow morning with minimal prep! Just print the challenges and hang or display them for your students and you’re good to go!

I love to print and hang the challenges around the classroom and allow students to work through them at their own pace, in any order. Students upload their completed challenges to their Seesaw Journal as they complete them. Don’t forget to create a folder for each challenge in Seesaw to keep them organized when you’re ready to view them. The challenges can also be used as early finisher activities, or even center activities!

Feel free to use these challenges to create Activities for your students within Seesaw too! There are examples of some of the completed challenges to make it easy for you!

Not using these at the beginning of the school year? No worries! There are options without the words "Back to School" included!

Please note - These challenges are not simply “paperless” worksheet activities. My goal is to help teachers rethinking the tasks and learning we ask our students to do in our classrooms. These challenges give students a chance to create, take responsibility for their learning through choice, and critical think within Seesaw - not simply complete a worksheet on a device. This requires flexibility on the teacher’s part and trust in your students. Many of these challenges allow students to make their thinking visible, which is always the goal when using devices in the classroom.


Make sure to check out the preview to see the challenges and examples of completed challenges!
