Spark Student Motivation Saturday -- Fun with QR Codes!

Fun with QR Codes

Both Courtney's and my kids love QR codes! What a simple means of motivating students and providing opportunities to self-correct.

The students in the pic above are working with super hero themed inference cards created by Fun in Fifth Grade.

I have also purchased some QR code products from Caitlin Kramer.

AND I have created some myself!


The latest sets I have made are informational text QR code task cards--similar to those I purchased from Caitlin Kramer, but tailored to our explorations.  These are not posted for free or for sale because I scanned some wonderful new informational texts that just arrived in our library.  I thought the QR cards would also spark some interest in these new texts come library day...

If you have never used QR code activities with your kids, I encourage you to try some.  Lots of goodies available out there, and they are super easy to make.  I used QR Code Generator.

As the school year nears an end, I find myself reflecting back on a year, that at times seemed long and came with its challenges, to relish in my students' accomplishments.  They have come so far! So I share this quote with you all...

Don't forget to fly on over to Head Over Heels for Teaching to read more motivational ideas!

Wishing you the best for a Happy Easter!!
