I have a confession to make. I am a big ole teaching nerd. Total teaching nerd. I love all things teaching (teaching not the insanity we call education and administration…the real teaching in my classroom where I’m making a difference. You know what I mean.) I love writing MY plans. I love buying stuff for my classroom (the mister can vouch for this!). I love creating resources. I love reading blogs and books and researching ideas, strategies, tips and new things to try. I love bringing technology into my classroom. If it’s teaching related I am all over it. Like I said TEACHING NERD! And I own it. And I’m proud of it.
So, with that being said. I am so excited to share this new technological tool for the classroom. I was introduced to this at the store, the theatre, on my shampoo (Axe Dandruff Control!) bottle…they’re everywhere. Then my friend Mrs. Parker from Learning With Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Crowder from Sprinkles To Kindergarten shared a couple of creations with me that used this piece of technology and I was ADDICTED! Seriously. My printer couldn’t print fast enough!
What is this technology that has glitter spewing from me in excitement?!?! It’s this little thing…

I love the idea of using QR codes ! I had never thought of using them from matching things. Great idea!!
My goal was to use QR Codes with my kids by the end of the, now I'm thinking next week we will be using this!! Thank you so much, I'm so excited about these and they would definitely be a great addition to your CC creations 🙂
Thanks for the shout out. QR Codes can be fun and educational. We love them! Can't wait to use yours.
Mr. Greg you are an awesome teacher and your post was totally fun! I even read it to my hubby and he typically doesn't showing interest in my blogging and teaching addiction (except to say that I spend way too much on TpT. Which I do!) he chuckled and smiled at your post and enthusiasm for teaching. I feel the same as you and I've been teaching 20 years!
Anyway on to QR codes! I love them and so do my kids.
Thank you for the freebie and I would totally buy products from you with QR codes. I really like the earth one in your post!
Thanks for this great post and your obvious joy for all things teaching! Your Monsters are so lucky!
Thank you for the ideas! I have been wanting to use QR codes but was brain dead coming up with how to do it! These are great ideas! I love your blog!
I loved the first paragraph in this post— could you be my twin brother separated at birth? Well put and wonderful sentiment!
Keep up the great work!
I love the idea of QR codes! I think that it is a fun way for kids to learn and incorporate technology. I am definitely going to use them in my classroom. Thank you for the great freebie!

Okay, Mr. Greg, I am hooked! Tell me how I can create these QR codes on my own or where do I get them? This is an amazing idea!!!
Great post and some awesome ideas on how to make preschool more enjoyable for the kids. you can also Refer Preschool In Pune for more ideas
Love..love…love this–I was so hoping to get some of this in before the end of the year–not so hot with the available technology in our school so seeing that you let them use your phone was encouraging so maybe I will try and see how it goes. I'd love some related Common Core ideas–how about a hunt outside for some stuff????
Consider me tardy to the party on the QR Codes but now I am hooked. I wanted to ask what app you use. Do you have one that you recommend for kindergartners?
I use Scan but you can use any reader that you prefer!
