I just created a lesson that people in iPad classrooms might want to try this year! This was a grade school assignment but I figured I would post here too!
Teacher: Jake Lee
Lesson Title: SeeSaw Blogging Fun
Grade Level: First Grade
Lesson Type: Beginning of School Year
Technology Environment: 1 to 1 iPad Classroom
Blogging Platform: SeeSaw Class Blogs
Students will have learned how to create digital artifacts using the app Book Creator. They will have created a digital story called “5 Things to Know About Me” in our writer’s workshop time. Students will also have practiced adding items to their SeeSaw Learning Journal. This lesson’s focus will be on learning to hit the “blog” button to add an item to our classroom blog. This lesson will also be a chance to practice using digital citizenship as students comment on each other’s blog.
Lesson Flow: This lesson will be done in 3 parts either in the same day or different days.
Part 1: Adding item to SeeSaw
Part 2: How to comment responsibly
Part 3: Commenting on our classroom blog
I will also guide parents to visit our classroom blog to see the student’s interactions. I always hope that the students commenting will also guide and be a model to parents as they comment on their child’s learning journal and our classroom blog. Also, I always leave a portion of my back to school night to speak to parents about commenting on their child’s work. Parents are encouraged to keep it constructive and positive. I like to have this lesson complete so I can share it with parents as a model lesson.
