These Challenges are perfect for kinder, first, and second grade students and are perfect for Fall. These Challenges require students to create and learn within Seesaw, and have a pumpkin theme! 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 only reason I call them “Challenges” is because it seems to be motivating for students when we can them challenges. ;) They are basically eight tasks, or activities that the students can complete within Seesaw.
There are eight challenges included in this pack, and everything you need to get your students going first thing tomorrow morning with minimal prep! Two of the Challenges include an optional planning sheet (graphic organizer) to help your students organize their thoughts and map out their Seesaw projects. Make sure to check out the preview to see the challenges and what’s included!
In addition to the eight challenges, there are five QR codes that can be used with the Challenges. The QR codes link to videos on YouTube about pumpkins that accompany the Challenges. The QR codes are optional extensions to the Challenges, and are not required to complete the Challenges.
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!
Since many of our younger students are new to Seesaw, these Challenges can be a great way to introduce Seesaw to students and include parent volunteers. If you have access to volunteers who are able to work with students, a volunteer can help guide students, answer questions, and keep students on track. You can also use the Challenges:
-At a center
-With older buddies
-As an early finisher activity
-With the teacher in a small group
-In collaborative groups/partners
-As a scoot activity
- 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.
