QR Codes in Kindergarten

Essential Question:  How do I use letter names and sounds to form words?

Ms. Libby's Kindergarten students got a chance to use the iPads in their literacy class.  They were given a lesson on how to use the iPads correctly, including how to carefully hold and use it. They learned how to access the apps on the iPad including the app, "QRafter" an app to read QR Codes.

In this lesson, students get the opportunity to practice CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) word building while integrating technology.

This lesson features 8 CVC word task cards, covering all five vowels. The words included are: bat, bed, lid, log, sun, and cat. 

Each of the task cards has a picture depicting one these words and the written word with a missing letter (except on the cards with the missing whole word - these are blank). Students use the picture and/or word clues to find the missing letter/word, then they write the answer on their recording sheet.

All cards are numbered for easy recording on the provided sheet. Once students have written their answers, they can self-check using the QR codes at the bottom of their cards! 

All class lesson on how to do the activity.

Student pairs rotated to eight stations,  read the card and said the missing letter.  Then, they used the app QRafter to read the QR code to find the missing letter and check to see if they had the correct answer. They wrote down the letter.
