How did it get to be August 13th already?! So much to do, so little time.
I finished up my room last week at school so I'm hoping to not go in this week. There's definitely stuff I could get done (like copies and such) but I'd rather spend time with the kids doing fun stuff. As long as they're not fighting, anyway.
So my #made4math today is the sticker I made for each of my kids. Last summer I bought a couple of packs of Avery shipping stickers. The Avery website has templates that you can pick from to create your stickers, one of which includes a QR code generator. I typed in the information that I wanted on it, printed, and voila! Stickers.
I passed them out to the kids on the first day and told them to stick it on their school-issued planner. Last year I kept a blog for each class and had the QR code go there; this year we're using a platform called Schoology so that's where the code goes.
I don't think too many kids actually used the QR code (or knew what it was until I told them) but some of the more techy ones thought it was pretty cool. Dan Bowdoin just posted on his blog some neat ideas to use QR codes in the classroom that I'd like to try.
