Word Family Workstations...QR style!!

ok, I may be a little obsessed, BUT these QR codes are so kid friendly!  I've gotten so many emails asking for more code projects!  I've been picking my brain as to how else I could incorporate these little gems.  I added the scavenger hunt to my TPT store, by popular demand.  My latest and greatest are some workstations. 

scanning with my iPad, I use Scanlife
making new cVc words
Basically, your students have their iPod, smartphone, etc with scanner.  They also have a jumble of pieces.  Some have letters on them, and others have QR codes.  They sort them by color, and  find the QR code for whichever group they'd like to start with.  The budding tech wiz will scan the code & up pops a word family ending.  He can add the letter tiles to the front of the endings to discover new words!  Of course, there is a recording sheet for accountability.  This set of centers is 20 pages long, and includes 6 different word families.  I am just so pumped about these codes, I'm sure you'll see more of them in my future! 

And then there's my classroom.  Well, I'm *crossing my fingers* when I go in tomorrow I have a whiteboard....we shall see.  Hopefully, I'll have more progress pics later on in the week.  Cause I will have kiddos the week after that & my room just will not do in it's current state.

Happy coding!

  7. I am a teacher,I like the QR Codes in the classroom.I think learning words by scanning qr code is very interesting, which can inspire the creativity of the students,also can cultivate their interests in learning.I intend to use this method to teach my students.
