  • Give students time to set their own goal and then talk with a partner.

Type Ending Sounds in SeeSaw

Students look at the picture and type the end sound to finish spelling the word, using the text tool.

TRIMESTER THREE

CVC Word Building

This is a great activity to use at an independent literacy station. This is all completed inside the drawing tool in Seesaw with one post.

  • Students will be recording, pausing, erasing, and writing so I would highly recommend modeling this activity for your students first.
  • In the example portion of the activity, you can watch a video of a finished student sample.

  • Post this Activity in advance with a note to parents so that they can do the activity from home if they are unable to attend Open House.

  • If you prefer to have families use their own phones, then have students make a journal post that families could leave a comment on and simply print out the QR codes to student assignments. Directions are below.
