Thank you for your interest in my products.

Have you checked out my 60 BOOK QR Code Listening Center?
Listening Center with a Twist~60 Favorite Stories

This is a great center (or something for your students to do when they finish early or as a reward!)! If you are lucky enough to have access to technology devices (ipods, ipads, tablets, etc.), then this center is for your students! You have to be able to download a FREE QR Scanner App.

By request, I have put my popular Author iPads on single 'cards' with pictures for the kids! These are the SAME stories as the Author iPads with a few exceptions. They are easy to use, easy to identify and most of all FUN (and easy) to SCAN!

I have included EIGHT stories from these Favorite Authors:
Kevin Henkes (Purple)
Mo Willems (Gray)
Eric Carle (Green)
Robert Munsch (Yellow)
David Shannon (Orange)

Each Author is framed in the color stated to help you recognize and organize your center. These are the same authors and stories that I have on large iPads in my store (don't duplicate your purchase).

The QR codes reveal short stories (read or animated). Your students can independently scan and then 'watch' the book~much like a listening center! Students do not read along. Great for Listen to Reading! More than one student can be engaged at once. This is also great for special needs children!

This product took some time to create as I have made it 'kid safe.' Please respect that this purchase is for one classroom. I have kept the price down to reflect this (this is way cheaper than buying each individual book!). The videos are derived from YouTube, but are funneled through the Safeshare site to ensure that students are not watching or seeing things they shouldn't be seeing. When the QR Code is scanned, the story pops up and the student pushes play.

If your school/district blocks or filters certain internet sites, please download my FREE Christmas Tunes iPad and try the QR Codes in your classroom/school. If the Christmas Tunes iPad works, then you should have no problems with any of the story iPads/iPods that are sold in my store. Please ask Questions using the Q & A tab above before you purchase.

Print the QR Stories provided, laminate and cut out. The QR Codes will still scan with the laminate. :) This is a lot cheaper than buying each individual book and CD's for your listening center! The kids love being independent and scan the codes!

If you have purchased any of my Author iPads, these are the SAME STORIES. If you would like certain Authors, please check my Author iPads by clicking the links below!
