PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun lesson for a Kevin Henkes author study unit.

8 QR codes are included. Students scan the QR code and watch/listen to a story or learn about how Kevin Henkes created his books! Print and cut out the individual qr codes and have students scan them using an iPod, iPad, or tablet. I found that having individual QR codes was much easier for students to scan. When there are multiple QR codes on one page, students often scan the wrong one by mistake. I like to cut them out and mount them on colored construction paper and laminate them for future use.

These QR codes link to YouTube videos of the stories being read aloud with illustrations from the books, and two short videos of Kevin Henkes talking about his books and characters. Check the books out from your school library so students can follow along. You can have the whole class do a Read-a-Thon and scan and listen to any story they choose, or use it as a small listening center.

You will need a device, access to YouTube (most school districts allow access to a filtered YouTube), QR code scanning app, and headphones. I have students open the video in Safari once it is scanned so they can turn the video into full screen landscape view.

If you do not want students to go to YouTube, I have also created this document with QR codes to a Safe Share website where there are no comments or suggested videos. Please look for it in my store.

*Recently updated to replace nonworking video link - A Weekend with Wendell has been replaced with Wemberly Worried.
