Reading Response QR Code Activities

Back at it again with our QR codes!  Our school is lucky to have at least one classroom set worth of ipads, so I figure we might as well make use of them!!  We have limited access to apps to put on the iPads, BUT we do have a QR code reader and generator that I couldn't be more happy about!! A few months back I posted about higher level comprehension questions using a TIC-TAC-TOE board....I have decided to revamp that product and add QR codes!  This product includes both fiction and non-fiction generative comprehension questions that can pretty much be applicable to most books children are reading.  

Here is the original: Guided Reading Higher Level Comprehension Prompts (Fountas and Pinnell)

This product includes everything from my orginal product + more!!
-Comprehension Teaching Cards
-3 TIC-TAC-TOE Boards (Regular)
-3 TIC-TAC-TOE Boards with QR Codes (all boards focus on different types of comprehension skills, no boards are alike)
-Blank Fiction TIC-TAC-TOE Board (Teacher/Student choice) for which QR codes to place on the board
-Blank NON-FICTION TIC-TAC-TOE board (Teacher/Student choice) for which QR codes to place on the board
-3 different recording sheets
-Directions for all 4 activities 
-One set of Non-Fiction QR code Questions (use for activities 
#3 & #4)
-A key for each TIC-TAC-TOE QR Code Board 

-Color QR codes by comprehension skill
I decided to take a risk and use one of the activities with one of my intervention groups to see how they would respond to higher level non-fiction questioning....

Students had been reading the book "GRIZZLY BEARS" in guided reading this week and learned how to search for information about it's habitat, appearance, babies, food, and other interesting facts they learned.  

Once we completed the book I had them do an extension activity with the same book, Grizzly Bears, independently as one of their literacy stations. 

Students simply got to choose any 4 QR codes on the sheet, scan the QR code, read the comprehension question, and then write their answer on the recording sheet.  I did give students flexibility that if one question didn't quite fit for the book they were using, then to try the next QR code. 

Students worked hard independently to stretch their thinking and think more deeply about how non-fiction text features help them as readers.  You may notice that their answers might not fit the question exactly, but I was proud that they give it their all!
Activities Included:
ACTIVITY #1-TIC-TAC-TOE with pre-made QR Codes (Students need to get 3 in a row, answer the comprehension question from the QR Code. Then record their answer on a loose leaf piece of paper, reader's response notebook, or choose 1 of the recording sheets (I have provided 3 different kinds) from this package. 

ACTIVITY #2-TIC-TAC-TOE- Student/Teacher selects the QR codes to be placed on the TIC-TAC-TOE Board
-Students need to get 3 in a row, answer the comprehension question from the QR Code. Then record their answers using a loose leaf piece of paper, reader's response notebook, or choose 1 of the recording sheets (I have provided 3 different kinds) from this package. 

ACTIVITY #3-Place all of the QR codes in a bin/basket and decide how many comprehension questions you want your students to answer (Encourage them to pick different colors to hit various comprehension skills). Then record their answers using a loose leaf piece of paper, reader's response notebook, or choose 1 of the recording sheets (I have provided 3 different kinds) from this package. 

ACTIVITY #4- Roll a QR Code Reading Response
-Make a KEY
-Number off each type of comprehension skill (1-Making Connections (red QR Code), 2-Characters (blue QR code), 3-Plot (green QR code), etc). Have students roll a dice to figure out which type of question they will answer. Choose a desired number of questions you would like them to answer. Then record their answers using a loose leaf piece of paper, reader's response notebook, or choose 1 of the recording sheets (I have provided 3 different kinds) from this package. 

Ex: If a student rolls a 3, then the student will search the pile for a GREEN QR code since it is labeled #3. 

These are great activities that you can use for independent reading responses, additional guided reading activities, or do whole class through a read aloud. If questions don't seem to be a good fit for the book, choose another question! 

I hope you find these activities engaging as well as help your student deepen their comprehension! 

I would love to hear back and see how you used the TIC-TAC-TOE boards in your class! :)

  3. Meskipun banyak beredar informasi tentang cara menggugurkan hamil yang bertebaran di berbagai media internet , namun hampir rata-rata ulasannya tidak menjawab rasa keinginan Anda . penggugur kandungan yang paling baik adalah dengan mengambil tindakan medis seperti Kuret . Karena apa ! karena ditangani langsung oleh pihak medis yang sudah ahli di bidangnya . Artikel seperti cara menggugurkan kandungan dengan jahe maupun asam jawa dan sebagainya , Ini belum ada yang menyatakan kebenarannya . Bahan-bahan tradisional itu hanya dipercaya untuk mengatasi telat haid yang tidak teratur bukan telat yang dikarenakan mengalami tanda tanda kehamilan . Memang terkadang ada beberapa wanita yang mengalami haid yang tidak lancar yang di sebabkan KB atau stress dan lain-lain . Dengan menjaga pola makan sehat untuk remaja dan menghindari stress bisa untuk solusi mengatasi terlambat datang bulan yang tidak teratur .
