Seesaw does it all. It's a parent-communication, a class blog for hte public, a way for students to show off their learning with peers and family, and it's a digital instructional assistant for the teacher because it fosters engagement, equity, and efficiency in the classroom when it's used for things like centers.
This is the main source of communication between myself and my student’s grown-ups. I have found that with rare exceptions, people have internet access nowadays. You can go online or use the app. You set your own username and password. Use this link to view our class blog.
