The live Zoom sessions of children with their teachers was a joyful and engaging experience that brought smiles on everyone's faces.
We will continue this for all classes, once a week to keep the connection between school and children. Toddlers will also continue with the Veracross post every day and the PreK with the online lesson plan. We are sure this is supporting the skill-building and maintaining routines with our young children.
For the K1 and K2's, we are happy to start the use of Seesaw to capture your child’s learning and for us to communicate about children's progress and needs. We will initiate this on Tuesday, 5th May 2020. The tasks to be submitted through Seesaw will be in the class presentation for K1 and K2.
Seesaw, an online platform, used all across the globe, creates a powerful learning loop between students, teachers, and families, to turn-in work for feedback from their teachers. We will continue this platform when children return to real 'classrooms' next academic year.
Below are steps for setting up Seesaw on your device.
Set up your child in the Seesaw Class App:
The login invite will be shared with you by your Branch Head.
Please refer to the images below and follow these guidelines -
For any question/concern contact the Branch Head of your child's branch that you have been using for the last few weeks. For your reference, here they are again-
The children will work on the tasks assigned to them, in the daily schedule, and upload the required tasks only where a link is provided for Seesaw. In a week, homeroom teachers will assign 2-3 tasks and 1-2 art-related tasks to tun in. Children are expected to complete and post the task before the submission day. Your children will need guidance initially, but would soon be able to do this independently. Seesaw is known for being child-centric, building independence, and strengthen the relationship between teachers and students (and parents) through the feedback process.
