Commenting on Seesaw

A lot of teachers are apprehensive about letting their students write comments on Seesaw.  I really love giving students the ability to do this - they LOVE sending and receiving comments, and it is a wonderful way to begin modeling good digital citizenship for our students.  In one first grade class I was in, the student said "Can we write compliments to our friends?" and I love this idea that she stumbled upon by accident - referring to comments as compliments and focus on making positive comments on each other's work.

There are some great examples on Twitter (follow @Seesaw, they retweet so many great ideas from teachers using Seesaw in their classrooms!) and this was one of my faves.  Use it to help model the process of writing a good, relevant, positive comments.
