Hello everyone, I hope you all had a relaxing/exciting holiday!
As the title of this post suggests, this will be the final blog post being made here on Edublogs. As the school is making the move towards streamlining sites and apps that we are using it has been decided that we will be using Seesaw blogs now for communication with parents, and showcasing student work.
What’s going to happen?
So, starting this week students are going to be learning about blogging and how to choose appropriate work that they want to share. Once the work is on the class blog, it can be seen by anyone who knows the blog address, which is: https://blog.seesaw.me/dfred1 The password for the blog is #SISrocks. For now the blog will stay password protected but in the future we may decide to share it publicly. However, for now while the kids are learning about what is appropriate to post on a blog we will keep it password protected.
What does this mean for you?
From now on, all weekly announcements and updates will be sent through the Seesaw messaging feature (It is similar to WeChat and allows us to answer questions quickly all in one place). Weekly messages about what is happening in class will be sent through Seesaw messages, and the “2C information” student folder will contain things like class calendars, etc.
As this is a new initiative, there may be some bumps along the way, so we appreciate your patience while we roll this out. Not all classes are doing this yet (we are the only second grade class to try it out first) but any feedback that you could provide will be very helpful for us to share with the rest of the teachers when the whole school starts using these features.
As always, thank you for all of your support and patience, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
