A Winner, QR Codes & A Freebie

Happy Monday everyone!
The First Grade Bloom and The Library Fox would like to congratulate Rachael Wallace for winning our giveaway last week!  We thank everyone who participated and I want to thank the Library Fox for collaborating with me.

I've seen a few QR code things on Pinterest lately and have them stuck in my brain.  So the only thing to do is to find out what they are and use them.  
So I created a quick little 'Teacher Scavenger Hunt' that kids and their parents can do during our Back-to-School Open House tomorrow night.  Each clue will be displayed somewhere in the room, in a frame.

Parents can then use their mobile devices and a QR code reading app to play along.

To create this fun activity I used:
- Microsoft word (especially screen shots)
-photos I pulled from my iPhoto
-Photobucket (because each photo is given it's own URL)
-the website

I can't wait to try it out tomorrow night!

And finally I'm linking up with Charity over at 

to share a poster I created for my favorite way to teach my first graders to select a book from our Classroom Library.  Since my kiddos start in a week, I'll be pulled that poster out as I continue to set up my classroom this week.

Have a great week everyone!
