Made 4 Math: First Day Handout

School starts for us in just 3 days!!!  I spent the weekend contemplating re-painting and totally changing my classroom.  My husband on the other hand...well, let's just say I would have been on my own on this one (which to his credit is VERY unusual for him.  He truly is THE most supportive spouse I know.)  So instead of creating total chaos for myself this late in the summer, I settled on adding a little pizzazz to my First Day Handout.  Earlier this week, I changed my class website header to resemble a composition notebook, so it was only natural for me to create for my #Made4Math project a matching first day handout.  In addition to the general class info in the handout, I included my Welcome Podcast (a previous #M4M project) via a QR code ( I also use QR codes to track calculators).  If you have never made a QR code, it really is as easy as 1-2-3!

I love the new look of my First Day Handout and I am sure it will look great with a classroom makeover for second semester:)

I love that your syllabus looks like a piece of paper! And thanks for the tips on QR Codes, I've heard about them, but never tried them.

Jennifer - Check out this post: http://www.sch00lstuff.blogspot.com/2012/03/equipment-tracking-with-qr-codes-and.html

The tracking form doesn't have to be as wordy as I made it, but I wanted lots of info so I could remember not only who I loaned my calculator to, but also how I could contact them to get it back:)
