Do you and your students love QR codes? Are you looking for a fun way to integrate tech into your literacy station? Do you have English language learners in your class that need extra support? This download includes QR codes for word family practice that can be completed by students independently (experiences include sound files). Each experience includes visuals and audio files.
Set this up as a tech center for iPads, iPhones, or Android devices. Each device only needs the FREE Metaverse app.
My students really enjoy learning with augmented reality. I hope your students will also. The QR codes are for Metaverse experiences that I created using the free Metaverse AR (augmented reality) app (available for iPad/iPhone and android formats).
Printables Included in This Download:
• 2 small (one page) signs to use on a bulletin board or hallway display
• 2 ½ page word family headings to use on a bulleting board or hallway display
• 12 large printable QR codes for bulletin board or hallway display (6 QR codes for AT word family experiences and 6 QR codes for AN word family experiences)
• 12 small QR codes (for the same experiences) to be used at a student center (ELA or tech center)
• Printable word cards for the two Google Vision activities
One thing to note: Google Vision can be a bit temperamental. Word card printables are simple with a lot of white space because I found that format works best. Sometimes students need to repeat taking a picture of the word more than once. Despite the inconsistencies, my students absolutely love using this activity. You do need an internet connection to use the app.
• The augmented reality experiences were created with ELLs (English language learners) in mind. Words have visual picture clues, audio files, and are introduced in a question/answer format to support the needs of young English language learners. However, this experience is appropriate for ANY children learning word families.
• When creating the experiences, I used probability blocks to vary the question responses. This enables students to complete the experiences more than one time.
• I included extra word cards to print (in addition to the target words) for the Google Vision activities. I like to have extra word cards in the mix to make finding the correct words more challenging. The extra words are all CVC words that differ by one letter from the “correct” word.
