Happy Hopping

I know that at the end of the year it can be really difficult to keep the students engaged...I am not sure who is more "done"- the students or us teachers, right?! We have to keep things fun and exciting for EVERYONE! :) To keep my kids engaged I like to offer things called bribes incentives! A new fun way that I am keeping my students on task is by doing a QR Code QUEST!

Here is what you do...

I use the QR codes and hide one or two in the activities that we will be doing each day. I might hide a QR code in a book, at a center, under a chair, etc. Throughout the day the students are on a QR Code QUEST. I hype it up really good, reminding them that the QR Code is small so if they are not paying close attention during an activity or while completing a task they may miss the QR Code. Missing the QR Code would be awful because once you find the Code you are the lucky winner and get to scan your reward! How fun!

I hope you and your students enjoy it! Wishing you a happy and terrific rest of the year!
