Changes in Distance Learning

on April 12, 2020

Hi Families 🙂 We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. Times certainly are crazy right now but Kindergarteners know how to persevere and we will get through this. With the closing of the schools by the governor, we need to take our learning in a slightly different direction. Dojo is great for messaging and we will continue to use it but it does not allow the students to easily share their hard work and learning. We will begin using the app Seesaw. Seesaw can be used on any device (computer, phone, tablet, ipad, chromebook…) and its free! It will allow us to send activities for the students to complete almost independently (once the log in process is complete). It works best with a touchscreen device because the students can interact and/or write on the activities. But you will see in the video of my son logging on, you can use it without a touchscreen as well.

This is what you will need to do to get started!

1. Go to app.seesaw.me (if you want to use a computer) or download the Seesaw Class app.
2. Select “I’m a student.”
3. Enter the code that was provided to you from your teacher. Each code is specific to the student and it does not need any spaces.

Once you are in, there should be a red notification on the little lightbulb to indicate that she has an activity. They can click on the green + sign and then read or listen to the directions 🙂
