### ¡Feliz Día Bisiesto! Happy Leap Day!

My students and I tried our hand at Origami today with some leap year frogs, and it made me realize that for being a teacher, I really do not have much patience! We made it through, however, and they had fun making them bounce afterwards. Sooo, I think it was worth it...as long as we do this only every four years!

By the way, this is actually a super awesome freebie from Robin Sellers at TpT. Click the froggie for the download!

¡Feliz Día Bisiesto! Happy Leap Year!﻿

### FlapJack's St. Patrick's Day Freebies! (Math and Spanish)

I love St. Patrick's day, do you? Maybe it's cause I'm redheaded, I'm a small part Irish, and green is my favorite color - who knows?!

Anyways, I have three math freebies for you, all in the same format but covering different skills. Click on whichever ones interest you and enjoy!

Grades 3-5th, Four Basic Operation Puzzles﻿

Grade 4-5th, Equivalent Fractions and Decimals Puzzles

And for the little guys (K-1st), Numbers 1-10 Puzzles

I've also make a Spanish greeting card for St. Patrick's Day. Click the image below to download.

### QR Code Math Freebies

Hey, teaching friends! I have been having a lot of fun in my class with QR codes and math, so I wanted to share with you three activities/freebies we've done recently.

Here's a video I made recently that shows several of the activities below:

## 1) Mi Problema/My Problem QR Code Minibook

We did this as a take-home extra credit project since it requires printing. Students made up their own math problem involving multiplication or division.

Then they created a QR code with the solution at www.qurify.com. The printed, cut, and pasted the QR codes into their minibooks.

I then stapled them all onto a bulletin board.

During math stations, groups of 2-3 have been solving each other's problems in their math journals. They write the student's name down, solve the problem, and then write a check or an x for correct or incorrect after they scan the solution QR code with our iPad.

Click on the image below to download the template and instructions (it's also in Spanish!).

## 2) Bottle Cap QR Code Fun

I love using bottle caps and Avery labels as instructional tools, and I recently discovered that you can insert QR codes in your labels at Avery's Design and Print Online feature. To see the fun ways we've been using bottle caps and QR codes to practice long division, fraction ordering, and multi-digit multiplication, click on the image below (And please become a follower of The Green Classroom blog! Lots of great ideas by many people for green learning fun!)

## 3) Fractions of  Whole Numbers QR Code Task Cards and Recording Sheet

We're learning about fractions right now, so I made some task cards involving fractions of whole numbers.

Students solve the problems on a recording sheet and then check their answers by scanning the QR code. If they're correct, they shade the circle inside that problem's box with their pencil (see image below). If they're incorrect, they leave it blank. This is a quick way to spot check who might be having issues with this skill.
