1st Grade - I work with 2 first grade teachers and typically they will do the same activities but this was the first time that this teacher did both activities, so I wanted to blog about it. This first grade teacher wanted to do a re-telling station in which students would read a book and retell it using explain everything. We teamed up and created a "model retell" in which students can refer to if they get confused. We co-taught the lesson so that the students would understand the content as well as the technology. Once they were done, students sent them to See Saw for review.
Here are a few examples. Keep in mind, this is their very first project, so that was quite the victory!!
Here is the "model retell" partially finished:
Here a student sample that two students tried on their own:

In second grade, the teacher wanted to have students create book reviews in which students chose a book that they read and would talk a little about it and why it was their favorite book. They would also have to rate their books as well either 1 star or 4 stars. They used Explain Everything and pushed it out to See Saw. Here is an example:
