Many times we will play a game of scoot whether it be in math practicing our facts, vocabulary words, grammar skills, reading strategies, etc. We always check our work! Once we finish playing the game we will either get into pairs and use 1:2 with iPads or we are able to borrow iPads from other classrooms so we are 1:1, you could also do it as a group! I have the kids go around and check each of their answers. They put a star next to the ones they got right or a circle around the ones they got wrong. Then they have to go back and fix the wrong ones. Such a great way for them to see their own progress! The kids love it because they feel like they are the teachers! I have bundles of QR codes already made in my TPT store but here is a short tutorial on how to make them yourselves.
1. Decide what you are going to be QR coding. It could be a website, video, link, picture, ect.
2. QR coding a website, video, or link is super easy. ALL you have to do is copy and paste!
Step one: open http://www.qrstuff.com You don't have to sign up, pay, or even put in an email address!! It is truly amazing!
step two: Copy and paste your website, link, or video link into the text box. Hit enter and a QR code will appear. Copy and paste the QR code into a word document! WALA!
Your kids will be independently be working or researching in no time!
If you would like students to check answers: Just type in an answer or a secret message by hitting plain text.
PICTURES or ANSWER cards can be a little more tricky BUT still very simple.
First create the question card and the answer card.
Step two: I like to use photo bucket to upload my answer card with a link. ( I screen shot instead of saving each individual one. Wayyy faster!)
Photobucket.com is free! Log into photo bucket.
click on upload to upload your photos or answer cards. (find your screen shot)
Once your picture is uploaded you are going to click on the box that says direct. This is going to give you a link to put into QRstuff.com
Once you have copied the link go to qrstuff.com to enter your QR code. Copy and past QR code onto question card!
Lots of steps but super easy and the kids absolutely love them! Great way to integrate technology into a lesson!
