You Oughta Know....blog hop

Hello, today we are so happy to be blogging with  Buzzing with Mrs. McClain and many other exciting bloggers about something "You Oughta Know about....."  
Well you probably know about QR codes but do you know how to create them yourself? 
  Did you know it is not too hard to create your own? Last year was the first year we introduced our students to QR code activities. We had 5 ipads in our classroom and used them during Daily 5 and other workstation times. Sometimes the  ipads were used to listen to stories. We found some of their favorite stories on video, taped them or recorded our own voice.
One time we even had our Principal record her voice to one of their favorite Pete the Cat stories and the students thought that was sooo fabulous!
In case you want to set this up in your classroom here are step by step instructions!

Hopefully this helps you try something new and engaging for your students! Have a great school year!! For your copy of the QR codes above click here.

Teachers Deals & Dollar Steals New Collaborative Blog!

I am so excited to announce that I am joining forces with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you a new collaborative blog called Teacher Deals and Dollar Steals! With this blog, there will be approximately forty teachers sharing their excellent work in what we are calling a Dollar Steal!

What is a Dollar Steal, you ask?  Each day, one of my bloggy friends will be sharing a post about one of their products.  In their blog post, they will share a link to their product where you can purchase it for only $1.00.  Now here's the catch, you'll have to act fast because their sale will only last for THREE days.  After the three days, you can still grab their fabulous product, but it will be at it's original price.

I would love for you to hop over by clicking the button above and follow our new blog through email or Bloglovin in order to ensure that you catch all of our deals in a timely manner.  We are also giving away a $25 TeachersPayTeachers Gift Certificate.  You can enter by following us!!!

Thank you for joining me on this new and exciting experience.
