Yep, more Seesaw...but Google Slides, too! #Freebie

 I'm on fall break. Here in Indiana half of my fall break was summer weather and the other half was just plain rainy and chilly. If you've never been to the midwest this is very typical. We can have multiple seasons in one week...or even one day. I will say the foliage was beautiful This is one of the trees on the primary playground at school. A week ago it was mostly green. This picture does not do it justice! I love watching this tree change every year. 

I also used my fall break to something VERY VERY important! I voted. It was extra special to me because this year is the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote! I exercised my right and am thankful for all the women that made it possible for me. 

If you voted show some love in the comments! You do not need to share your personal vote or political beliefs but I love to see other women using their voice. 

I also had some family time with the nephew. He's on fall break, too. We took the time to hang out and make s'mores and watch Hocus Pocus.....twice, lol. He even was my guinea pig for some Seesaw lessons but he loved it. That's what you get though when your aunt is a teacher. 

I also did what many teachers do....I did something 'bad'.....I did something we don't always speak of....I did something that I just felt like I needed to do.....

I. Went. To. School. Over. Break. 

There. I said it. I feel better now! I didn't feel like staying on Friday. I was pooped! So I took some time to go in earlier in the week. I kind of like it though. I get the copier all to myself. I can play my Pandora stations without worrying about underage ears hearing something they shouldn't or my co-workers hearing it go from my 90s rap to country music in a matter of minutes...and I just get a lot done. It was very productive. No regrets!

As I've mentioned in some previous posts, I think, we do OG at my school. It's a great phonics program to work on phonics and fluency. This is the second year I've done it and with the pandemic 'shutdown' I didn't make it as far as I would've like...but I'm really good at those first 100 lessons or so, lol. I'll share another post about OG, resources, and how we implement it for our virtual students. 

When we return from break we will be focusing on the 'H-Brothers' and talking about when to use c and k. We make an anchor chart in class and practice it. 

I decided to make a Seesaw activity for extra practice to reinforce the lesson. There is a video and a word sort for them to do. We use Seesaw in K-2 for our LMS and Grades 3-4 use Google Classroom for now. I made the Seesaw activity and I'm pretty sure the Google Slide will work just as well for those that use GC. 

It's a freebie. I'd appreciate you saving or sharing this on Pinterest or whatever avenue you use to share things you like. I am adding it to the Seesaw community library but they aren't currently approving new activities because they've had an overwhelming number of members/schools joining and are still rolling out updates. I expect that they'll start approving assignments very soon but I still want to share in the meantime. 

Click here to go to TpT to download the freebie. The download has a link for Seesaw and GC.
