QR Code Listening Centers (Part 2)

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Froggy-Goes-to-School-Listening-Center-Card-FREEBIE-1458443After writing last week's post, How to Create a Listening Center Using the Audioboo App & QR Codes, we thought it might help to show you an example of one we made and give you a few extra tips to make it work in your class.

I LOVE the Froggy books by Jonathan London, so I created a FREE listening center card to accompany our Froggy Goes to School Sequencing Activity. (Please excuse my Texas twang...Haha!)  Click the picture on the right to download the listening center card for free.
Once you've printed/cut/laminated the listening center card, you should:
  1. Download a QR reader to the smart device(s) your students will be using in the listening center.
  2. Obtain a copy of Froggy Goes to School from your personal collection, school library, public library, local book store, or online, and place it in your listening center.
  3. http://www.amazon.com/Froggy-Goes-School-Jonathan-London/dp/0140562478/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1411321747&sr=1-1&keywords=froggy+goes+to+school
    • Suggested storage - Glue an index card sized library pocket on the inside cover of the book.  Place the listening center card inside the pocket.
  4. Place the smart device in your listening center, along with some headphones/earbuds (make sure the device is connected to the Internet).  If you'd like multiple students to listen to the story at the same time from the same device, consider purchasing a headphone splitter.
  5. Train students how to operate the smart device, QR reader, and the listening center.
Then, your students should:
  1. Scan the QR code using the QR reader on the smart device located in the listening center.
  2. Put on the headphones/earbuds.
  3. Press play and follow along with the book.  Note: A train "choo-choo" will sound to alert students to turn the page.
We hope you enjoy our free listening center card.  Comment below or email us at watsonworks1@outlook.com if you have any questions.  We'd love to hear from you!
