More fun with QR codes!

I was so excited and blessed to get an innovative teaching grant from my district's education foundation before the school year ended!  They came for a surprise visit and awarded the grant to me.  My class will get 4 iPod Touches in the fall.


I wrote this grant to get more tools to use for scanning QR codes.  I LOVE using QR codes and so do the littles in my classroom.  I have made a few goodies about QR codes that are available in my store.  Click below to see them.
I also have a whole page on my website about QR codes if you want to visit it to learn more.

And here is a video of my class using QR codes for a sight words hunt:

Here is a video about my surprise grant award.  My interview begins around 1:22.

Thank you Pflugerville Education Foundation!

S'more fun on the last day of school!

Last Thursday was the last day of school for my sweet pre-k kids and we had tons of fun!

We started the day in my bare classroom (since I am moving grades, it's been emptied out slowly).  I showed them my box from Mr. Sun and they were immediately excited to open it up.  Well, right as we were about to head outside to open it, our school's AR parade started, so Mr. Sun enjoyed the parade with us.

After the parade we headed outside to open our box and saw what was inside.

 We used some inferencing skills to decide what to do with the supplies inside and one little finally said, "We could make s'mores!"  So then we got into a discussion over how to make them and we decided that since Mrs. Siegel, our principal, would never allow us to build a fire at school.  After sharing our thoughts, we decided that the sun could cook them for us!  Sprinkles to Pre-K!!!!

We built them, let Mr. Sun do his work, and then enjoyed them.  Yum!

We also created some cutie, tear-jerking, flowers with poems.  Sniff...

...and sent them on their way to have a "kool" summer.  

I loved every moment of this year and look forward to having some of them again in kindergarten.

I am already in summer school.  Day 1 was today.  Let's hope the next three weeks go quickly so I can enjoy reading, blogging, and creating!
