BONUS - total of 28 different Thanksgiving themed QR codes!!! By scanning these QR codes, your students will view 28 different read aloud stories, songs, and videos to enhance your Thanksgiving theme.
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 will need to download a FREE QR Scanner App.
I was careful to make the links in this file 'kid safe.' 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 resource pops up and the student pushes play.
Please note that there is one QR code that has not been funneled through the Safeshare site. It is a link to the Scholastic website where you will find great videos about Thanksgiving. If your district prohibits unfiltered sites, you will want to color over that QR code with a marker before sharing it with students.
Print the main sheets and/or iPads with individual QR codes, laminate and cut out. This is a lot less expensive than buying each individual book and CD's for your listening center! It also provides a variety of videos for your students to enjoy as they learn about Thanksgiving.
A few of the TWENTY-EIGHT active QR code links and the bonus Scholastic link are:
Twas the Day Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey,
Run, Turkey, Run! by Diane Mayr,
A Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting,
Thanksgiving Is... by Gail Gibbons,
many many songs,
and many more including a link to the Scholastic website where you will find extra videos!
Your students will have the opportunity to see all 28 of the QR codes contained in this file to enhance your Thanksgiving unit!!!
When I create files, I use a variety of videos from YouTube. However, more often than we would like, videos are removed from YouTube causing "broken" links in my files. If you happen to find a "broken" link in this or any of my products, please leave a comment for me so I replace the "broken" link, update and upload the file, and you can reprint for continued use.
