Mr. Kross has now updated half of our old 3rd generation iPod touches to 5th generation iPods. Thanks Ben Davis! Because of that, we are able to do more with our iPods including using one of our new apps, "QR Reader."
This past week we have been practicing multidigit addition with and without regrouping. To practice our different addition strategies, we played a game that involved QR codes and addition. The kids broke into groups of two and traveled around the room visiting 12 stations with different multidigit addition problems. After they solved the problem, they scanned the QR code to check their answer. They loved having the immediate feedback, plus getting to use a new app is always exciting! The kids were grumbling when I told them it was time to stop. Looks like we'll need to try more activities in the future like this...
