Back To School Linky Party!



I love having my students work with QR codes.  So, I created a back to school scavenger hunt for back to school night.  Students will walk through the hunt see where items are located in their new classroom, and it gives me time to chat with parents while my new students are off on their search. You could also use this the first day of school. What a great way to get kids excited about the upcoming year!  I can't wait!



YOU CAN FIND THIS PRODUCT HERE

So, this is how it works.  Place the start card on a desk close to the front of your classroom, students will scan the first card.  Once they scan that card, they will be directed to introduce themselves to their new teacher!  Scan card #2 and they will then find their cubby.  Eventually, they will work their way around the classroom.  So much fun!  You will need a few mobile devices to pull this off, but I figured that parents will also have phones that the kids can use. 


Keep scrolling down for more back to school products linked-up by my teacher pay teacher friends!
