QR Crazy

It's only July, but I'm already planning for September.  Over the last month I made several sets of QR code flashcards. You may be thinking, "What in the world are QR codes?"

You've probably seen QR codes in magazines and on packaging.  They are a newer version of a barcode.  After scanning the QR code with your iPhone/iPad/iPod/Android, you are directed to a company's website or given information about a product.

In the fall, our class will be using QR coded flashcards to review math facts and concepts.  Students will work a problem, then scan the code on the back of the card.  The answer will be displayed on their iPad after scanning.  This is a great way for students to self check their own work.
Go ahead and work the problems.  Scan the codes to check your answers.
I made cards for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and sequencing.
All of the sets are available on TPT.

Plastic soap dishes work well for flashcard storage.
This is just the beginning of the QR craze in our classroom.  Happy scanning!
