Back to School Fun!

Here's a fun activity that I like to do at the beginning of the year and it's a hit with parents! 
On the first day of school I like to ask the children to share stories about their fondest summertime memory.  While sharing, I pull students to record their stories for their parents to hear at Back to School Night. Here's how I do it.
First, I use an app called "audioboom" from my phone and then I log onto the website and grab the automated QR! It's that simple! I print out the code and attach it to a picture that I have taken of their child. I make a bulletin board with all the children's faces and matching QR Code. 
I also have handy the How To: QR Code Poster that has an explanation as to what a QR Code is and how to get and use the app. It is so much fun watching the expressions on the parents face when they hear their child speak about their summer. If you try it yourself, make sure to let me know how it went!!! :)

  • at Open House to showcase student work!
  • as a flyer to send home to parents
  • to share with colleagues and posted in the teacher’s lounge to share with PTO
