This post showcases the first set of Question of the Day for Seesaw. They’re more a academic in nature than the ones we posted the first week of distance learning, which were meant to help students get acquainted with the tools they’ll need to use in Seesaw activities. You can read more about those (and our distance learning plan) here.
It’s also worth noting that from here on out, the questions will follow a predictable schedule to make it easier for teachers, parents and students to navigate. Get an overview of the activities, then get them for FREE at the end of this post!
You can even edit the text and the instructions to meet the needs of your class. Need different sight words? Want to make the story problem easier/more difficult? You can do that! Check out this video tutorial to see how easy it is:
Day 1: Addition Number Story
Students read and/or listen to the number story, then solve it by using the pencil tool to draw a picture. They’re also asked to write the number sentence.
Day 2: Find the Hidden Sight Words
Students move the green box around to find the sight words hiding in the dirt. They also use the microphone to record themselves reading the sight words. There’s nothing quite as adorable as hearing the voice of a six-year-old shouting into a microphone!
Day 3: Making Inferences
Students make inferences about the picture by using the sentences “I see….” and “I think….because…” I love hearing what they come up with! One of my little sweeties inferred that the girl was a superhero because she had her hands up like that, and that’s what superheroes do when they use their super powers. So cute!
Day 4: Unscramble the Sentence
Students put the sentence in order, using the picture as a clue. If they get stuck, they can listen to the sentence on page 2 of the activity.
Day 5: Build With Pattern Blocks
Students move the pattern blocks around to make a flower. I like this for a Friday because it’s fun and open-ended. Each flower ends up looking so different from all the others!
