Would you like to impress your parents with your “Ninja Techie Skills”, entertain them and inform them at the same time? I found a way to do all three. I had a collection of videos in my You Tube Channel from past years that I knew my new parents and students would love to see to get a preview of what it would be like in my room for the upcoming school year. However, I really did not want to use the hour we had scheduled for the kids to complete our “Get to Know You” checklist and get supplies put away.
So, I decided to use QR Codes on a Pictograph in our hallway for parents to scan and view as they came in to our Open House.
I used Canva an awesome, free app and web tool to create informational and entertaining pictographs.
I heard giggles and words of excitement in our hallway as they scanned and viewed the videos. Hopefully, providing some comfort and ease nerves as our first day of school approaches for both the kids and the parents.
