I am now a TPT Seller! ... or I guess a TPT Freebie-Giver for now!

I just posted my first product to Teachers Pay Teachers! I'm so excited, but a little nervous as well! I'm not 100% convinced that I'm cut out to be a TPT seller. There are so many fabulous blogger/seller teachers out there that I pretty much think of as teacher celebrities (like I'd probably get nervous if I saw them on the street!) and I have a hard time seeing myself potentially as one of them! My wonderful husband actually encouraged me to do this. I've mentioned it before, but never thought I would have the time or creativity, and what if I (gasp) use a copyrighted font or clipart!! Sooo... this first freebie item is actually a test. We'll see how it goes over, if people actually like this and download it and give me feedback... maybe, just maybe, I'll keep going.

Anyway, on to my FREEBIE! I've only used QR codes a time or two in the past, but have really gotten into them recently. Plus, my school just got a whole mobile cart of iPad Minis and I am beyond excited to get my hands on those babies! My freebie is a packet of audio sight word QR codes for my students to listen to. I will likely use these during Daily 5 as word work, but they could be placed around the room as a scavenger hunt type activity as well. There is one set of cards with just the QR code, and one set with a blank spot. The students can scan the code, listen to the word, and then record the word on the card (with a dry erase marker if laminated, or build it with letter tiles, etc.) or they can write it on one of the recording sheets provided.

I am super excited to use these in my own classroom, and hope that you can use them as well. If you like the product, and find it useful, I'd LOVE some positive feedback. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for improvement please let me know here in the comments, or by emailing me at

Follow my store... just in case I create more! :-)
