What are Seesaw Learning Journals?

  • Seesaw is a simple way for teachers and students to record and share what's happening in the classroom.
  • Seesaw gives students a place to document their learning, be creative and learn how to use technology.
  • Each student gets their own journal and will add things to it, like photos, videos, drawings, or notes.

How Else Can We Work Together?

  • Check Seesaw regularly—you'll be notified about new journal entries and class announcements.
  • Celebrate your child’s successes and encourage the skills that we are building at school together at home.
  • Keep me updated on how your child is doing and let me know how I can be most helpful.

If you have more than one child using Seesaw, you can subscribe to both journals using the same account.
