Obsessed with CVC Words...and QR Codes (Freebie)!

So I know I might be a little late on this one, but I am newly obsessed with QR codes! It's all thanks to Kristin over at iteach1:1- she makes amazing QR code activities (check them out here) and she totally got me hooked on the awesome-ness of activities with QR codes!  This new obsession goes well with a seems-to-be-never-ending-obsession with CVC words.  I was looking over my plans earlier this week and I'm pretty sure I had the term CVC words listed several times a day.  To be fair, as a reading specialist to little kindergartners and 1st graders, it really is a major part of helping them develop their skills as early readers, but also, as a result of the daily need to do some sort of CVC word activity, I regularly need to try new things to keep those CVC words exciting, which is where the QR codes came in! I made the freebie below as a little 'creating CVC words' practice for my little friends and they just LOVED it.  The best part is you really just need 1 iPad/iPod/some sort of device that allows your to download a free QR Code Scanner app!  I personally love the free app, Scan by QR Code City because it seems the simplest to use for little ones and has a larger display of the text after it is scanned. For this activity, students say the word that is pictured, make the word with letter tiles and then scan their answers to see if they are correct (...and then go back and try again if incorrect). Once you download the app, you are all set to use QR Code activities. Hope you are able to enjoy this freebie and start scanning in your room too!

Common Core Alignment:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.2d Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.2d Segment spoken single-syllable words into their complete sequence of individual sounds (phonemes).
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.3b Decode regularly spelled one-syllable words.

 I actually introduced QR codes to my little friends with another QR code pack I created- it is a vowels or consonants sort and there are way less QR codes involved, so it's a great way to just get them used to scanning the codes while still practicing some content!  I use vowels or consonants sorts as a way to get my friends to better understand blends-- they struggle majorly with understanding if a word has a blend or not, so this is our way to get some extra practice with actually identifying vowels and consonants.

This is what shows up when the QR code is scanned.
Recording sheet- 2 more chances to scan!
 Oh and yet another fun CVC (and CVCe!) QR code activity-- check it out here! Like I said...i'm obsessed! This literacy center was super fun because they got to scan their answers each time they made a word- and let me tell you, it really motivated my little friends to make their word correctly and quickly knowing they'd get to scan the QR code next.

  3. Thanks for the QR code fun! I, too, recently started using them. You have encouraged me to branch out a little more, since I use them mostly for math activities.

  5. You really have become addicted to QR codes! lol
    I have only played with them a bit but never in the classroom. I think they're great though. My district is suppose to be moving towards getting iPads for the classroom. Your activities will be great when and if we get them! :)
    Thanks for sharing
