$25 TpT Giveaway and a FREEBIE!

Thursday, July 17, 2014 / 12 comments
Hello fabulous followers! Yesterday I had a BLAST meeting and having lunch with a great group of VA Bloggers:
Many of the VA bloggers ended up convincing me that I needed a Techie Teacher Facebook page. I have told myself that I wasn't going to start a FB page because that would be another digital source I would have to manage between personal email, work email, personal Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, TpT, Google + for both work and my personal account, Blogger, Word Press, and the list goes on...However, I DID it. This will be a quick way I can get ideas and resources out to Y-O-U. Therefore, I am giving a $25 TpT gift card away to one of my "Likers". All you have to do to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below by LIKING my FB page. Woo hoo!

Also, be sure to grab my latest FREEBIE: Back to School QR Code Riddles.

I taught 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade and I ALWAYS had a special bulletin board dedicated to "Pondering Puzzles" every year. My students LOVED this board! I had a variety of "fun" riddles/problems for them to solve each day (math problem, inferring scenarios/riddles, and pundles. This really sparked curiosity and excitement since it didn't seem so "academic". When I started to add QR codes to the puzzles the students were WILD about making a guess and scanning the QR code to check their answer. Ohhhh, how the simplest things are so nice when you work with little ones :)

  1. Welcome to the Facebook world!! I'm glad I got to meet you even though we were barely able to talk! I didn't expect there to be so many of us! We live so close to each other that maybe we should try and get together again sometime!

  6. How do you use the QR codes? Does each child have an iPad or iPod? We just have 4 old desktop computers in each room. I would love to incorporate these into lessons though!

    1. Hi Jessica! When I was a classroom teacher I had two iPads that I go through a Walmart grant. I also brought my personal iPad in and an iPod touch so that would give me four devices to use in a center where students worked with QR codes. Some had to share the a device to scan the QR code. After a lot of coaching, the students knew they had to solve a problem before scanning for the answer. There is a way you can scan QR codes with a desktop but you have to have a camera. I'm guessing your old desktops probably do not have a camera attached?? Hopefully your school will jump on the bandwagon soon and purchase a few tables that you can download the free QR Scanner to. I am seeing iPads and other tablets popping up in many school systems :)
