The following is a true story. . .

. . . that was overheard in a Lakeville Elementary hallway:


Student 1: "What is that room?"


Student 2: "It’s the teachers’ bathroom."


Student 1: "Why do they have a special bathroom?"


Student 2: "I think they have bigger toilets, since their butts are so big."



So, we might all want to take it easy on the holiday cookies.

Clever Seesaw Idea

Here's a way to help students record in Seesaw so as to greatly help block outside background sounds and distractions during the recording process.

Some teachers use cardboard boxes (spray-painted a fancy color) and others have found cloth cubes on Amazon outfitted with metal book stands. Happy recording.
