This activity will only work on an iPad. It's 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. I also intentionally wrote a different starting word in the template attached to the activity. Remember, you can easily change the template by tapping on the template and erasing what is currently there using the Seesaw drawing tool. Make it work for your classroom and students.
