QR Code FREEBIE!!

I don't know about you, but I am in LOVE with QR Codes!  I have been trying to think of a variety of ways to incorporate them into my classroom and I finally came up with a way!  CENTERS!!! Story Time!  Woohoo!  So, in this pack you will find: six different links to websites that read stories to kids online (literally includes HUNDREDS of stories read aloud).  Students simply scan the QR Code and it takes them to the website...once there, they choose a text to read! Awesome resource!!! These stories include both fiction and non-fiction and are appropriate for Pre-K, kindergarten, first, and as an intervention in second grade. Hope that you enjoy and please, if I need to correct or add anything, email me prior to leaving negative feedback! I would be more than willing to correct anything! loftisn@conwayschools.net
