Seesaw Is The Best

I like seesaw because my friends my teacher and Mum and dad can see what work I have done in class because I am forgetful so on seesaw my teacher tells in the comments what the work is all about. SEESAW IS THE BEST!!!!! Some people may think that seesaw is a waste of time in your day but I think that is a great app to use especially when you are vey forgetfull and you don’t come home and tell your parents about your day because you completely forget about your day at school. So when you post something on seesaw your teacher will approve your work and then say down in the comments what is is all abot what you are learning about in class. SO THATS WHY I GIVE SEESAW FIVE STARS OF RATING.

Seesaw is not the best

I am a student currently using seesaw and this app is great accept for a few things.
The first thing is that there are things on the side and bottom that allow you to change from writing something to drawing and ect this is great but the problem I have with this is that it often gets in the way of reading things that are on the side or bottom behind it. What I am saying is that you should make a way to hide it and bring it back.
The second thing that annoys me about this app is that the bar that pops up on the right side of your phone to change the colour of text or your pencil is witch NEVER GOES AWAY and it blocks a lot of my vision of the screen. Maybe this problem could be fixed if I had a phone with a bigger screen but I don’t.
The third and final thing that I want changed about this app is that you can not change the brush size when using any one of the drawing tools. To fix this problem you could maybe make it so if you hold your finger on a drawing tool at the bottom of the screen then it will bring up a options menu.
I hope this app gets better so I can give it a 5 star review.
Edit: maybe also change it so when someone who is not the teacher comments on your work it doesn’t count as a notification because at the moment I get a ton of notifications of classmates commenting something irrelevant to me or my work (and they don’t even comment on my work and I still get the notifications.).

Thanks for Saving My Voice!

Home learning has brought many changes to the way we teach and of course some are going to stay even though we are back face to face.
One example that stands out is recording my voice explaining what is to be done in a writing activity or maths activity or any other subject! This saves me from repeating myself and constantly reminding others to be quiet all at the same time instead of allowing students to get on with the task at hand at their own learning pace.
After verbally (and unvirtually) presenting the activity to the whole group through an engaging warmup and explanation, the children can then gather themselves, their books and iPad, dice, pencils and so forth, put their headphones on and re-listen and view at their own learning pace to parts or all depending on their needs.
The post will have not only my voice speaking in a warm calm tone, but any pertinent resource such as a worksheet, video or list of writing goals which I also read out in case they are struggling with reading.
Instead of a sharp and raspy classroom voice, I am soft and encouraging and completely able to be heard! Who’d prefer to listen ti a sharp tone? No one of course!
And, I get to save my voice!
A classic problem of teaching is losing your voice from straining to be heard in a busy class of 25 people.
Problem begone, thank you Seesaw!
