I have linked over 100 books with You Tube read alouds, or videos using QR codes!
I have included
-100 QR codes labels to stick on the front of each book (each label has the title and author of the book, and a unique QR code) -10 to a page - you can print on paper and tape to books, or print to sticky backed paper
-A letter explaining the QR codes to be taped inside the front cover of each book
-A letter to parents
For those of you who don't know, QR codes are similar to bar codes, but you can link them to all sorts of things, like videos or websites. With QR codes attached to the books, the books may be now used in listening centers, as independent reading materials, or for sign out to go home! No need for CD's, or boom boxes, just a piece of mobile technology! All you need is any mobile device such as an ipad, iphone, tablet, smartphone etc. and to download a free QR reader app!
I have included many well known authors such as, Mo Willems, Robert Munsch, Bill Martin Jr, Doreen Cronin, Kevin Henkes, Barbara Reid, David Shannon, Jan Berenstain, Dr. Seuss etc. Etc.
I am still working on this, when I get another 100 titles linked, I will post that as well. If you would like specific titles added, let me know and I might include them in my next set I post!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Because I have no control whether individual parties remove or delete items from YouTube, some of the links may eventually not work. I have tested all 100, and they are all working as of this post, but please let me know if you find any that no longer work, I will update!
Thanks so much, please share how you have used these, I would love to know!
