Beginning this year, all classrooms in grades 3 - 5 have a classroom Google account. This allows students to access documents, presentations, and group projects both at school or from home.  Feedback from students and parents has been fantastic!

QR Codes in the Classroom

What are QR codes?
Students and Teachers alike have been trying their hand at using QR codes.  QR codes are unique images that can be read by downloading a QR reader to a smart phone or tablet.  The code is linked to a file or website and can then be viewed on the device.  

3rd graders at J.R. Watson used QR codes to share information about Quality Tools in their classrooms with their families during Student-led Conferences.

4th and 5th graders at McKenney-Harrison used QR Codes to share several Anti-bullying videos that they created.  A family flier went home inviting families to scan the codes to start conversations about "Standing Up and Stepping Up Against Bullying".
