I wanted to share some news with you about how your child can use Seesaw and other resources to continue learning and sharing at home while we are away from school.
Normally, students are not able to login to their Seesaw journals from home, but with the new “Home Learning Codes”, students will now have the ability to see my posts, complete activities, and share their own at-home learning adventures. Here’s what you’ll need to do to get started.
Students can go to https://app.seesaw.me/ on a computer or get their parents to install the Seesaw Class app (https://web.seesaw.me/platforms) and login with their Google account, just as they do in school.
Your child will see all of his/her work as well as anything that I’ve posted to the entire class. They can complete Activities, post pictures, videos, drawings, etc. to share things they are doing to keep their brains active at home.
Also, if you have more than one child sharing a device, they’ll each have to use their own code or log in, signing out of their own class before handing the device off to a sibling.
This video does a great job of explaining all of this in student-friendly language. Feel free to watch this with your child: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRQrR21ZEuM&feature=youtu.be
Starting tomorrow, 3/19/20, I will begin using Seesaw to continue 4-Yatsky's read aloud of the book, “Gone Fishing” as a way to connect with students.
In my email dated 3-18-20, I shared our class code to access Storyworks online at https://storyworks.scholastic.com/
Students will be able to access the Google Classroom in the same manner they do in school. Students should go to http://classroom.google.com and login with their @masdstudent.org login. This afternoon, I posted a class chat for students to have a way to converse with me and their peers while we are away from school.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you are struggling with any of the resources. Please keep in mind that I am learning as we go along.
