Two for Tried It Tuesday: QR Code Task Cards

I really enjoy my summer break! It gives me the opportunity to blog a bit more and to join my bloggy friends's linky parties. Today I'm linking up with Holly over at Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried It Tuesday and with The Teaching Tribune for their Two for Tuesday party.


First Tried It! I recently joined the Smartphone crowd... I swore I never would. However, my phone carrier decided to merge with a mega-company and I did not like the phone, package, whole idea plan so I joined my nieces and nephews on a Framily plan through a more local carrier. It was a deal that I could not pass up.
LOVE it!
Second Tried It! I've been adding apps to my new phone like crazy, everything from games to utilities. One that I installed almost immediately was a Bar Code Scanner.



Third Tried It! I really, really wanted to try adding QR Codes to my SCOOT activities, making them more useful as a literacy center tool. They could become self-checking. Nearly all my sixers have their own cell phone, tablet, or ipod. I had already experimented with the codes last summer using a piece of software called Quick Mark. However, I didn't have my own QR Code reader to use in the classroom. I couldn't (wouldn't) introduce activities into my classroom that I wasn't able to personally monitor. This past weekend, thanks to my new Smartphone, I succeeded.

Meet my newest TpT Product: Warming-up to Predicate Adjectives, smartly dressed with QR Codes. I am such a kid. I keep playing with the cards, checking and rechecking the QR Codes. I actually made the codes with Quick Mark and inserted them onto each card after resizing them to fit. I really like how this SCOOT pack turned out. If you do also, you can download your own set HERE or by clicking on the pic below.


As part of The Teaching Tribune's Two for Tuesday linky, this product as well as the next: iCan Identify Direct Objects SCOOT, a complement to the first (ELA teacher joke) are 50% off in my TpT Store for just today, Tuesday! So grab them while you can.




Be sure to stop by The Teaching Tribune for more great bargains on terrific teaching products. But hurry... the deep discounts only apply to today- Tuesday!

Remember to get those PURR-fect Previous Posts ready for Throwback Thursday. This week's post holds a mystery and a giveaway! Be sure to come back and link-up!

    1. I know! OMGosh, it is forever in my hand! I think I may retrofit a couple of my already published task card packets with QR codes. I am hooked.
