Speical Ed Blog Hop
If your kids love using the iPad they will love using QR codes. For this particular activity the kids had to share the iPad and take turns. I love using technology in the classroom, but I do worry about them using it too much and not getting the necessary social skills they need (turn taking, waiting, sharing an item, etc.) and language skills (verbalizing what they see). So we did the QR codes on the iPads, but the kids had to take turns scanning the qr code. When it was their turn they would tell us the color and shape and the kids would color it accordingly. They LOVED this activity. They loved how they didn't know what the next shape would be. This activity is simple to do, but the kids were engaged the entire time and loved it.
