7. SeeSaw Book Snapshot # 2
This year we are using Seesaw to share the books that your children are reading! For homework, the students should be reading for 20 minutes. They may read non-fiction, fiction, magazines, graphic novels, favorite educational blogs, autobiographies, etc. They should finish and change what they are reading every week/couple of weeks. Your child will post to Seesaw to share what they have discovered through their reading!.. Seesaw is private; you’ll only see posts created by your child.
Please Sign Up Now to Engage in the Love of Reading with us!
