My children LOVE to use QR codes. I use them all the time for a literacy center. This packet features stories from eight authors. Here are the stories included in the packet.
We do lots of author studies throughout the year. I like to introduce the children to these authors and their different styles. The children feel so smart and ARE so smart to know about these great authors. We often refer to different techniques that the different authors use as we write our own books.
So, since the children love the stories so much when we read them, I wanted them to be able to hear the stories over and over again- which gave me the idea to make Author Study QR Code Books.
I have scanned all of the videos through ViewPure to remove any advertisements or distractions. Please check the sample QR Codes to be sure ViewPure isn't blocked at your school. If it is, many times the IT person at your school can easily unblock the site for you if you ask (or give them cookies or donuts...).
I print the QR Codes out with the author cover page, and the children can choose an author packet to use for center time.
My Author Prezi is also a huge part of our studies. I have included a link to that in this packet as well. As we study a particular author, I show the videos of that author throughout the week on the Smart TV.
I hope you enjoy this packet as much as I enjoyed putting it together!
I also have these QR Codes with Writing Prompts.
Sometimes I use the prompts as a quick little activity or assessment after a center- or as a whole group activity. They also are fabulous activities to leave as sub plans! This packet has the QR Codes for making into books, as well as the QR Code on the writing prompt so you can send the story right home with the children! They LOVE that.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great week!
