What are some strategies we can use when facing a big challenge, so that we don't burn out? Seesaw Skill 1: Record a video and post to Seesaw 3. Record phrases we can use to keep us going when facing a challenge (e.g., "Nice effort trying to solving that math problem!"). Please ask pupils to record videos of themselves (in groups) and post them to your Seesaw Class, sharing these phrases. Encourage the pupils to add text to the video if they wish to. I will then select one video per class to be added to my display using QR codes.
