This week’s Seesaw Questions of the Day are all about insects. If you’re not familiar with Seesaw, you can read more about it on their website. It is such an amazing tool – I’ve used it in the classroom for a few years, but I never knew all the cool features it had until I started using it for distance learning.
If you haven’t read the original post about my school district’s distance learning plan for grades K-2, head over there now to get the scoop! We used these Questions of the Day for daily attendance during distance learning, but they would also be great for use in the classroom.
Scroll through this post to get an idea of what they’re all about, then download the FREE file to get links to 7 weeks of these activities! What’s really cool is that you can add them to your Seesaw activity library and assign them to your class just as they are, or you can edit the text and instructions to make them a perfect fit for your class. Watch this quick tutorial to see how easy it is!
Day 1: Missing Addend Number Story
Students read and/or listen to the number story, use the pencil tool to draw a picture of it, and write the number sentence.
Day 2: Find the Hidden Sight Words
Students record their voices as they move the green box around to find and read the hidden sight words.
Day 3: Making Inferences
Students make inferences about the picture by using the sentences “I see….” and “I think….because…” It’s fun to hear the different inferences students make with these – they come up with things I’ve never thought of!
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. These turtles crack me up…I know they’re probably trying to eat the butterfly, but they just look so happy!
Day 5: Build With Pattern Blocks
Students are invited to build an insect with the pattern blocks. We’re learning a lot about the characteristics of an insect, so I look forward to seeing which students incorporate their learning into their finished product.
