This product is now free as I no longer maintain it. Links have changed over time. While many of the links work well, please feel free to use it as a template for creating your own QR Code cards to use in your classroom and a guide for creating QR Codes to Tumblebooks for your listening library needs. Thank you.
All Flash errors have been corrected. QR Codes now link to mobile site, and Tumblebooks is accessible on iPads.
The Nonfiction Read Aloud QR Code Listening Centers is a 6-page Listening Center with QR Codes. This document is fully editable and includes 20 cards with QR codes that link to videos of nonfiction read-alouds, found on Tumblebooks and on the Scholastic websites.
Each Code links to lists of multiple books in a particular category. There are 12 Tumblebooks Codes, and 8 Scholastic Codes. You will need to login to Tumblebooks prior to using Tumblebooks Codes. Our local library provides a link that logs in to Tumblebooks automatically, and I simply copied the link into a QR Code generator and pasted the Code into my document. I then printed this on the back of my Tumblebooks cards and students were able to login and search for books on their topic of choice with two easy steps.
Each QR Code takes students to a page where they can choose books to read based on the subject they choose, such as Science, Social Studies, Communities, Environment, Insects, Animals, Habitats, Seasons, Geography, and Biographies.
Simply print, laminate, cut apart the cards, hole punch, place on a ring, and place in a center with ipads, ipods, tablets, computers with web cameras, or any other form of QR Code reader you have available. I use this as our listening center during our nonfiction genre studies.
You may download the Preview (which is a PDF) or click download for a fully customizable Microsoft Word document, created with Word 2010. I cannot guarantee the tables will convert properly to any other version or word processor, which is why I have included the PDF.
Thanks for checking out my product!
