Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Knowing how to add words to a photo is one of the most useful Seesaw skills for students. Students can visually represent new vocabulary, document an experiment, or describe a math concept. Blending pictures and text helps your students “show what they know” in your classroom, and in Seesaw it’s easy for teachers to see all of the students’ photos in one place. Before students complete this activity, teach them how to log in, post to the journal, and respond to activities. We have 4 quick lessons to teach students these essential skills at web.seesaw.me/get-students-started-kit. Give the lessons in person or virtually via video conferencing. Then, assign this activity to teach students how to use Learning Tools. This activity works great at the beginning of the school year as you’re learning about your students. It’s also a great opportunity for peers to get to know one another. To do this activity with students… 1. Share this activity by tapping the green Share button. 2. Students sign in to Seesaw. 3. Students follow the steps to complete the activity.
