3 ways to practice fluency online

There are days where it comes clear to me why I chose the name Messy Tech for my blog. This is one of those days. Last year I used Seesaw for fluency and loved it. But this year we are not using Seesaw, so I am trying out different options. And, well, it's messy.
I guess what I like about the "messy" concept is the idea of trying things and figuring things out and things not having to be perfect. Not messy as in I'm-not-going-to-plan or I-don't-know-what-I'm-doing. More like trying new things and new ways and seeing what works best. I'm sure you've also noticed that many methods have YAY! spots and NAY! spots.
I guess what I am saying is I don't come to you with a perfect solution for things. Just little bits of trial and errors to share along the way. Forgive me if that is too messy for you.
