QR Codes & Slim Down
We are in another crazy week!
Benchmark testing, picture day, Leadership party!
When will we have a normal week?
I'm linking up with the fabulous Holly today!
We are moving to 1:1 iPads next year!
We were supposed to get 6 iPads in January, but with the cold weather days, everything is behind.
Hopefully, they'll come soon!
I decided to go ahead and introduce QR Codes to my kiddos using my iPad.
Have you heard of them?
If you haven't, you might be living under a rock! I kid!
You scan the cute little square with any smart device and it gives you a text or website.
There's tons of free apps to scan the codes.
I found this great product on TpT from Kristin Kennedy.
It was perfect as a center as we were wrapping up our unit on fractions!
I basically showed my whole class how to use the QR app (I think it's called QRafter) and sent them on their way.
Here are two of my sweeties working on identifying fractions.
They absolutely LOVED it and are begging for more!!
There's a ton of free QR code activities on TpT! Go check them out!
So I totally missed Slim Down Saturday...again!
But in big news...I finally weighed myself!
I lost 6.8 pounds in January!!
I will be weighing every Friday morning from here on out!
After getting sick and having two and half ice days, I really fell off the wagon.
My goals for this week are to get back to tracking my food on My Fitness Pal and to just keep moving forward. I'm having a hard time getting back into it! Why is it so easy to stop and not start again?
So my word for this week is to sustain my focus!
