Hey, Elementary Teachers. You may not want to hear this yet, but… CONFERENCES ARE COMING! It will be here before you know it and you may be trying to think of some ways to show parents all the great things your students have learned so far since the beginning of the school year. Last year, at about this time, we posted about using Seesaw as a way to showcase student work. Check out Getting Ready for Conferences with Seesaw if you want to go back in time.
Here are some updated tips for you as you prepare for Conferences this year using Seesaw:
Save Time On Prep Work
Collect student work by taking photos with Seesaw and putting them into Seesaw Folders so you can finally stop sifting through mounds of paper you may have collected since the beginning of the school year.
- Create a separate folder named “Conferences” for easy reference.
- Don’t know how to make folders in seesaw? Check out this Seesaw Toolbits post: Seesaw “Best Of” Folders
Give Students A Voice In The Process
Have students lend a hand in picking work they are proud of. Ask students to think back on their progress or look or maybe have them think of things they would like to learn and have them create post about that.
Engage Families Throughout The Year
Students love having a wider audience for their work. Show families what Seesaw is all about and how to join while meeting with them face-to-face.
- Up to ten family members per student can stay in the loop using the Family App (iOS, Android) or by logging into the Seesaw website
