Kick-start Your School Year with QR Codes: Lots of Freebies!

I’m a firm believer in making learning fun and interactive, and QR codes are the perfect tool to help us accomplish that. Here are some QR code activities you can use to kickstart the engagement in your classroom.Kick-start Your School Year With QR Codes: Lots of ideas and freebies to engage your students with QR codes at back-to-school
I whipped up a new back to school Scan the Room activity that reviews several important ELA skills: synonyms, antonyms, contractions, parts of speech, and sentence editing.  All you have to do is print the cards and tape/hang them around your classroom.  Your students will roam around the room answering the questions and can check their work by scanning the QR codes.
Another freebie I just posted is this little pack of QR codes that link to brain break videos.  If you plan on using brain breaks, this is a great way to introduce them to your students.  The “Following Directions” video is especially good for back-to-school!
If you’re looking for an icebreaker activity that gets your students talking to one another, this getting-to-know-you QR code cube is perfect.  Students roll the cube and scan the QR codes to reveal questions to ask their partner. 
These sunglasses have been a hit every year with my second and fourth graders because they love being able to move around the room while solving math problems.  
Click HERE for my double-digit addition and subtraction with regrouping freebie for primary (shown above) and HERE for my rounding freebie for the upper grades.

QR code scavenger hunts have always been my most-requested math activity by my students, probably because they are so fun that they don’t realize they’re actually learning.  
Click HERE for the base 10 block freebie (shown above) for primary and HERE for my types of lines and angles freebie for the bigger kids (shown below).
If you've ever thought about trying a QR code listening center, you may want to download this free set of read-aloud stories. Students just scan the QR code and the story begins to play.
The “QR Codes” tab at the top of my blog has even more freebies and ideas for engaging your students with QR codes throughout the school year, so be sure to check it out.

I hope you have a great start to your school year!:)
