Who could use another reading teacher in their classroom? I know I could! What if I told you I could guide your students through engaging activities that involve blending and reading CVC words while you work with other groups? It’s true! Download this FREE -at family activity and try it in your room today!
I AM SO SO SO EXCITED to begin the year with these!
Each QR Code Activity is 15-16 minutes long! I KNOW!! That means you can pull a small group and I will pull a small group!! RIGHT? I mean, it’s ME on the recording for 15-16 minutes! And I’m teaching!! I’m doing GUIDED INSTRUCTION with YOUR kids!!
And you can trust me because I’ve been at this for 20 years. HOLY COW.
I created 15 different activities!
During each activity, I’m working with students on phonemic awareness, CVC words, word families, word chunks, blending, rhyming, writing, and FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS. 🙂 The kids have to color objects a certain color, find objects based on the word I sound out, etc. Then we practice writing the words at the bottom of the page. The first three words are words we practiced during the mini-lesson and the fourth one is a word we didn’t practice, but that students should be able to write because it belongs in a certain word family. This is for an enrichment and extension of the activity.
As always, I act ridiculous and sing songs and try to make the kids laugh during the activity so that it’s FUN!
Other word families included are:
-ag, -et, -ed, -it, -ig, -ot, -op, -ug, -un
And then the last five activities are a mixed practice review!
Don’t worry if you think you’re “not good” with technology or think you don’t have adequate technology in your classroom to use these QR Code Activities.
All you really need is ONE smartphone. Which means you could even use YOUR OWN PERSONAL phone for this activity! Then get this awesome little doohickey on Amazon for under $9 and several kids can listen at once with only one smartphone.
You can also ask parents to donate old smartphones.
I got four just from putting out a plea on my personal Facebook page! You just have to sound sad. And hint a little. Like this: “Believe it or not, I still have a tape cassette listening center. It’s true. I know. I’m really trying to update it with some old smartphones if you have any lying around . . . ”
It doesn’t have to be a smartphone. You can use iPads, too! And Chromebooks work as well — you just need a QR Code Reader installed as an app. Then use the Chromebook camera to scan the code.
And, because it’s a QR code, you will need access to Wi/Fi. 🙂
Anyways, it’s so so so fun and so so so cool!! My new kiddos are loving these so far!!
Do I sound excited?
BECAUSE I AM!!!
But I’ve kind of worn myself out so I think it’s time for a little nap . . .
