Wordless Wednesday-Dewey Stand

I'm linking up with Christina to share my new love and very favorite new technology stand...
The Dewey Stand has changed the way I teach with my iPad...
For Real!!!!!!



I'll post more later on how much I LOVE this new tool to use with my iPad!
and how it's changed the way my kids are sharing what they learn across the net!

Do you use your iPad with your projector?

I was SUPER EXCITED to see that

yes grading!

My New Fav....QR


I LOVE using QR codes in the classroom.
and just discovered that there are QR codes that don't have to utilize the internet....
duh!

Using the QR Treasure Hunt Generator, I can quickly create a 
QR scanning station for the vocabulary for the story of the week !

Nothing fancy here...just print the QR codes and have the kids
fill in the answers on a recording sheet or notebook paper.

Print off and display the directions poster at the station...

Print off QR codes and glue to index cards or a cute cut out...

Keep the answers somewhere you'll be able to check the work quickly.


And you're done!

Easy Peasy lemon squeezy!

Download the QR codes for the Vocabulary for 
Second Grade Reading Street story 5.5

3-Digit Addition with Augmented Reality

Do you use QR codes in your classroom?  
Then you'll LOVE this Augmented Reality station using the Aurasma App to find the answers...
Simply print out the trigger 3-digit addition cards for A-J and put at your Math Station.  
Follow the direction slide for obtaining the Aurasma App (available from both iTunes and Google Play) and following my 2 channels. 

Trigger Images can be used as just regular station cards as well... 
 Students complete the addition equation on the recording sheet by copying the equation and solving.  
Then use the Aurasma app to check their answer to see if they are correct. 

Download it from my TpT store HERE
I'll keep it free until after my last workshop this week.


Enjoy!

ONE QR Code + Evernote = Math Task Heaven!

FlapJack did a post on using QR codes with EverNote and Animoto for Memory Making
 that I absolutely fell IN LOVE with!
....read more about it HERE

Sooooooo....it just occurred to me....

If you can do it with memories... 
why not with Math Tasks????
...Create .... ONE EverNote ..... 
that has a Math Task in the Note...

Use the link for the EverNote to create a QR code...

embed the QR code something...
a website....
a picture frame...
a card...

Then all you have to do is change the EverNote 
and the Math Task QR code can be scanned
EVERYDAY and be a different challenge!

Here's my version of a background using
mycutegraphics.com
and Ashley Hughes ClipArt...


I've got it printed and ready to hang in the room tomorrow...
The kids have a "Learning Log" that they record different responses inside....
so they can scan the QR code in the morning and solve the task for a sweet treat!

Here's a couple other designs you might like to use for your own QR code....

 ~~ OR ~~

Print off OUR Math Task picture and scan the QR code along with us each day!

You might even like to
tweet us @swampfrogkids 
with the answer to the task each day :)

Old Lady Clover Update

Major bummer when the kids scanned the QR code today and our school server has blocked Sound Cloud...so I went back and added the audio to google docs and create a QR code for it...

Here's the original Sound Cloud version...
 Here's the updated version with the google doc audio embedded in the QR code...
Enjoy,
