what app works the best in general for elementary teachers/students for communication/assignments? seesaw, Dojo, google classroom?
Becky cowley county
last year each teacher had a different one they used and as a parent with 5 kids and 3 daycare kids online last spring I could not keep up so I was hoping for guidance for which one to ask the school to use.

A lot depends on personal preference and comfort. Seesaw is great, but others can work really well too. I don’t think there is a best.

I think advocating for consistency makes a lot of sense.

with a choice board it has to be clarified wether the choice board is optional or required assignments. We had that issue last spring as well.

one teacher required choice board assignments and another they were optional.
Leah McKeeman - Manhattan, KS
Good point Becky. Asking for clarity on requirements and expectations is very important.

My kids doubled up on 4-H projects and show and tell as well as subject overlap for choice boards and hands on assignments. it worked great and the kids got projects done quicker this last year.

I listen in to make sure the kids are staying on track and sometimes it is the only way I know what the kids are supposed to be doing. Communication is a challenge for our teachers at times. sorry for all the questions and comments. thank you for sharing your knowledge.
