QR Codes for Listening with Questioning!

LOVING the QR codes....

So....got my mom involved and had her read a couple of my favorite books!

But added a twist...the kids need to write about what they read in their reading journals.

Grab a copy of mom's recordings  {HERE} !

Just print and fold to put in the reading basket :)



Enjoy,

  2. I love QR codes! I teach 1st graders so have just been getting started with QR codes. Do you do other QR codes with your 1st grade? Thanks for sharing! Jackie

    1. Yes...I did QR codes with my firsties last year as well as the year before. They LOVE to use them. I recommend teaching one or two to be your "experts" on using the app and then go for it :)

    2. Yes, I think I have a couple of your QR codes, but I'm not creative in creating them. If you have others keep me posted! Keep up the great work! Thanks again!

  4. I use Garage Band on my Mac to create a podcast. I share the podcast to my iTunes. Then I can upload the mp3 file into my google doc account and share the URL from there.

    1. Wow, that wasn't too hard at all! Now for a tougher question...how did you do the ones that had video of the book too?

    2. I take the pictures of the pages I want on the movie...(I don't use all of them)...then I import the pictures into iPhoto so I can edit...crop the pictures to focus in on the view I want and edit out the words by blurring...then I import the pictures into iMovie and add the audio .... I have to manually adjust how long each picture shows in iMovie in order to make it match the audio. Then I Share it to Quicktime Video on my desktop....from there I can upload to google docs to get a URL address or to YouTube to get a URL address and create the QR code....sounds complicated, but once you do it...you're good to go.
