Spelling Homework

I have my students complete their spelling homework through a QR Code. These are the directions I gave them.

Type each word 2 times into a QR Code and print it or email it to me at (my email).

Directions: www.qrstuff.com 1. Data type is plain text. 2. Type your name and then type spelling words twice. 3. Change color if you would like. 4. Print or email.

Scavenger Hunt


I used our class atlases to look up information about each state. The kids were allowed to bring their devices and use them in class. They used the clue and the atlas to figure out the state.

You could use this as a review for a test.

Word Walls

Add a QR Code to your word wall vocabulary words. Students can listen to how the words are pronounced. On mine, I said the word, then the definition, the word again, and lastly, I used it in a sentence.



QR Matching

Students had to match the state to the capital and they used the QR to check to see if they were right. This activity and others can be found at the following url.
