Soooo excited! I just got a new blog design! It’s by A Bird in Hand Design! I am so in love with it. I literally emailed her yesterday afternoon, she got back to me right away. I emailed her my thoughts about how I would like it to look and filled out her super easy design form and by this morning she had it all installed and looking exactly how I imagined…actually even better because I was unsure of how certain patterns would go together but it turned out fabulously! What do you think?
Linking up with Doodle Bugs! Five for Friday Time!
This was one exciting week! We had our school wide “Amazing Race” style play day (A.K.A Field Day) and it went pretty smoothly (the planning/coordinating was a whole other story, but you know how that goes!).
I really wanted to incorporate our new ipads into the day so that it would get all the teachers and students using them (especially teachers who hadn’t touched an ipad before). I also wanted to incorporate QR Codes in somehow. So, we came up with an Amazing Race style play day where the kids had to scan the QR codes to get their clue that would tell them where to go next. We modified some Dr.Seuss quotes to fit our needs. Scan the code below for a sample!
|FYI You need a QR Scanner app on your mobile device in order to scan the code.|
We had beautiful weather for the day and the kids had a blast solving the clues and getting their “passports” stamped. At the end of it all our custodian came out with the giant hose and sprayed the kids down. This is a tradition at our school’s play day and the kids are always so excited for it. I of course always pretend like it’s not going to happen each year…I know, I’m mean.
|That’s Charlotte The Pig behind her (A.K.A. Bacon…yes I said that. We have a very strong love for bacon in our house).|
That makes my day every.single.time! Enjoy!
