Living and Nonliving Homework Bracelets with QR Codes. Awesome age appropriate & fun Kindergarten homework! These QR code bracelets are great for strengthening the connection and communication between school and home and empowering parents to help their children master new skills. After learning about the living and nonliving things, place the QR code bracelet on each student (or their backpack / folder) to take home. Each bracelet contains QR codes that link to an educational practice video and a simple family activity (known as the SECRET GAME) for the child to play with their family to reinforce their new learning!
♥This is part of my MEGA Kindergarten Bracelets BUNDLE (with 164+ bracelets)
♥It's also part of my SCIENCE Bracelets Bundle
with 12 Science bracelets!
TEACHERS love these QR bracelets because they allow for easy differentiation (give each student bracelets based on their remediation and extension needs), students spend extra time at home working on concepts (because there is never enough time at school), and parents are kept in the know about what their children are learning without daily/weekly newsletters. PARENTS love these cool bracelets because they know exactly what their child is learning and the simple game & video empowers them to support their child. STUDENTS love the bracelets because they get to show off their new learning at home and watch the fun living & nonliving video!
Now, when the parent asks, “What did you learn at school today?” the child can proudly share (and practice!) their new learning. The “Secret Game” gets students excited to share the bracelet with their families and is a simple and meaningful way for the family to reinforce what was learned at school that day. By seeing the Science content in various contexts, and giving parents meaningful strategies to reinforce concepts taught at school, students better retain their new learning!

ABOUT Sight Word Bracelet
Simply print the color or black/white bracelets (the parent directions print on the back), and tape/glue/staple the paper band around the students' wrists or to their backpacks or folders. Let students know that you have a special video for them to watch at home about what they learned in class today, AND you’ve also attached a SECRET GAME for them to play with their families.
Students will excitedly present the bracelets to their parents to scan with their Smartphone, tablet, or iPad at home.
These "We're Learning About" Bracelets each link to educational YouTube videos using QR codes. If you plan to use these bracelets at school (rather than students' homes), please download the preview to test that the QR codes open on your school device (and on school WiFi) before purchasing. This is because some districts block YouTube, but it won't be an issue if parents use their own devices to access the videos at home. I value your time!***
To easily download a FREE QR Code Reader
from the App Store (for iPhones & iPads) or Google Play (for Android phones and tablets), just search the phrase, “QR Code Reader” and choose the QR scanner you’d like. I personally use “QR Code Reader” on my Android and “QR Reader” on my iPad & iPhone. Both apps work well for me, but any free QR scanner will work!
