Distance learning for first grade can be a challenge. BUT Seesaw is a fantastic platform to help make it more manageable. I have teamed up with Kevin Husen again for 10 weeks' worth of Seesawfirst grade activities.
The best part? These Seesaw activities have been already loaded for you. All you need is a Seesaw account and the links that are provided in this file. WOOT!
This unit is a growing Seesaw bundle, so you will need to come back and re-download the file each week until all of the activities have been added. Week 2 will be added on 4/3/20.
Each week you will find first grade Seesaw activities that are just 1 click away from being added to your Seesaw account:
Week 1 Seesaw First Grade Activities for ELA include:
Week 1 Seesaw First Grade Activities for Math include:
Q: Can I see a step by step process on how to load the files to Seesaw?
A: Yes! Click on the preview video I have made.
Q: How does this connect to Seesaw?
A: Inside the download, you will find links for each activity for the week. You simply need to open the file called READ ME FIRST. Then click on the link (inside of the PDF) and it will ask if you want to add it to your Seesaw library. How EASY IS THAT!?
Q: Will these files also work in Google Classrooms?
A: We have added a PowerPoint version and the moveable parts/backdrop screen have all been saved as individual files. You can upload them to your Google Classroom account.
Q: Do you need my Seesaw login information?
A: No, inside of the document, there are links. As you click on the links, the lesson will be added to YOUR set Seesaw activities. It does not matter if your TpT email is different than your Seesaw email.
Q: Can I share these files with my parents?
A: These files are meant to be shared. They may not be placed on a school-wide server that is not password protected.
Q: Can I share these files with my team:
A. This purchase is for a single classroom use only. You may purchase an additional license if you wish to share the files with another teacher.
Q: Will my parents need a different login to use these activities.
A: No, these activities will be added to your library and you can assign them as usual.
Q: Can I edit the audio of the premade Seesaw activities.
A: This file includes the images so you can certainly make your own directions to the tasks.
Q: I'm having trouble loading the activities into my Seesaw account.
A: Please know that Seesaw is a bit busy right now. A trick is to log out of your account then click the link in the PDF again. That seems to work perfectly. You may need to repeat these steps of logging out and then clicking the links. We hope that with time Seesaw's site will be less overwhelmed.
Q: Will these work on Google Classroom, One Drive, Canva, Class Dojo?
A: As I am not fully versed on those platforms, I will say this. You will be given a PowerPoint version of the file. You will also get a PNG file for each backdrop screen and every movable piece.
