Thank you for your interest in my products.
A few questions and some quick answers!
How do I use this product?
This product can be used in two ways~with devices or on your computer!
How to use with technology devices (tablets, iPad, iPod, iPhone, etc.)---First download a FREE
QR Reader/Scanner (I like and use i-nigma) from the App Store. With the QR Scanner/Reader app, SCAN the QR Code for the story you wish to watch and listen to on your device. Once scanned, the story will show up on your device. Just push the ‘Play’ button and enjoy the story!
If you DON’T have individual devices for your students, but have computers, laptops and even a projector, you can still enjoy this product!
This product can also be used on a computer!
Just download the product on your computer (no need to print!) and CLICK the QR Code with your mouse! I have attached a HYPERLINK to the QR Code. What this means is that by clicking the QR Code with the computer mouse, it will take you right to the video story. This will allow a small group of students to watch on a laptop or computer. If you can project the product for your students, the whole class can enjoy a story!
Do the video stories show the words for the kids to follow along?
No, the videos do not show the words for the kids to follow along. This is a “Listening Center with a Twist.” The videos are read or animated. Students just watch and listen. It’s engaging and fun for the kids and you will find that your students will want to watch them over and over! After my students get the hang of it, I add a response sheet to the center.
Are the videos safe for kids?
YES! I have taken extra steps to make sure that this product is SAFE for kids. When the QR Codes are scanned or clicked, the technology device or computer will go right to the story. There are NO advertisements or other links that the students can click that will allow them on the internet. They will only be able to watch the story!
What happens if a QR Code doesn't work
Please contact me! I check all my products pretty regularly, but if you are finding that a QR Code is not working, let me know! I will fix or replace the code with a working one! Please use the Q&A tab at in my store.
If your District/School has a filter system, please check my FREE QR product(s) before purchasing! If you have any questions, please contact me using the Q&A Tab in my TpT Store.
Try Before You Buy!
Back to School Rules!
Make sure it works at your school as some districts/schools do block sites.
This product contains:
One Large iPad with ALL the QR Code Stories
Mini (Individual) iPads with SINGLE QR Code Stories (for easy scanning and/or controlling which story(ies) you want your students to watch).
Each iPad (Large or Mini) are Hyperlinked! This means you don’t even have to print the product if you want to allow the students to view the stories on a computer or project on your Smartboard.
This is a great center (or something for your students to do when they finish early or as a reward!)!
I created an 'ipad' that has 9 active QR Codes looking like an 'App' on an iPad. The QR Codes reveal short stories (read or animated). Your students can independently Scan or Click the QR Code and then 'watch' the book~much like a listening center! Students do not read along. Great for Listen to Reading! More than one student can be engaged at once. This is also great for special needs children!
Please respect that this purchase is for ONE
classroom. I have kept the price down to reflect this (this is way cheaper than buying each individual book!). You can have your friends and colleagues purchase this product at 50% off by buying additional licenses. How do you get this perk? Go to your purchases and find the product in your list. Find the tab next to the product that says, “Buy Additional Licenses” Click on the tab for the discount!
How to Use:
Decide if you are going to have your students Scan the QR Codes or ‘Click’ the Qur Code with a computer mouse. If you are going to use for a student center or activity, print the iPad or mini iPad(s) provided, laminate and cut out. The QR Codes will still scan with the laminate. :) This is a lot cheaper than buying each individual book and CD's for your listening center! If you don’t have individual devices and are going to use on a computer and/or watch a story as a class, just download the product on your computer and Click the QR Code with your mouse. The kids love being independent by scanning or clicking the QR Codes! Check my feedback for all my QR Stories for reassurance of quality!
