App Smash Venn Diagram

An easy way to get a Venn diagram template is to use the Feltboard app ($2.99) - one of my faves! On your iPad, open Feltboard, choose the Venn diagram background, then click the camera to save this blank template to your iPad. This can now be added as a template in Seesaw or background in PicCollage EDU or other apps to help your students organize their thinking.

Below are a couple of examples of using this Venn diagram in Seesaw activities to compare Jan Brett's versions of The Mitten and The Hat. The top one, created by Sally Bishop, has students use Seesaw labels to type in the similarities and differences. The bottom version uses emojis. Students tap the label tool and are then able to move the emojis around the diagram.

Seesaw Activities Galore!

Activities in Seesaw are awesome for so many ways, but maybe my very favorite is the fact that they are so easily SHAREABLE! I love being able to create an activity, then share the link with others to use in their classrooms. Some awesome BPS TILT (Teachers Integrating & Learning Technology) teachers and I decided to start a database of activities, organized by grade level, to share all of these creations with other teachers. This spreadsheet has contributors from Seesaw users all over the Twitterverse, so it's sure to get filled with lots of awesome ideas. Visit bit.ly/ActivitiesGalore to check it out!

Reflections & Goals

Mrs. Lang used the app Feltboard ($2.99) to have her first graders illustrate reflections from 2017, and goals for 2018. After creating their Feltboards, they added to Seesaw where they could use the microphone tool to record their reflections & goals. Great, engaging project to elicit some reflections and goal setting from young learners! Click the images below for examples.
