We most recently have been working on converting between different forms of numbers. My students have done a great job developing their conceptual understanding and moving between forms. We are now working on fluency with these skills. Instead of another worksheet, I created a QR code scavenger hunt.
The students were very engaged and were able to practice an important skill. They have put in several requests for other QR code scavenger hunts. I even had kids who wanted to take the cards home to show their families how QR codes work. This classroom has several digital devices that can use QR code readers and we also allow students to bring in their own devices. This gives us enough devices that the entire class can do the scavenger hunt at the same time if kids work in pairs.

I really liked looking at the record sheets when kids were done. It helped me to see who was doing these problems fluently in their heads and who still needed to do intermediate steps.

|Students will complete this at the beginning of class tomorrow. It will give me one more look at which kids I need to target during instruction time. I love formative assessment!|
