These poems are used as part of our whole group shared reading, but what a great way to grow fluency!  You can read more about my 5-day poetry fluency plan with these poems by reading:   5 Day Poetry Fluency Made Simple.

Kindergarten iPad videos: Add to the iPad Literacy Station

I was asked how to turn our videos into an iPad station.  I suggested using QR codes.  Then I thought… Why don’t I just make it happen for you.  I have added these QR codes to each of the Poetry Music files   Video units.

Kindergarten iPad videos: How do they work?

These songs play using a QR code.  (Confession… I don’t know how QR codes work… they just do).  On your device, you will want to download a QR Reader.  there are many free QR Readers out there… just go to your app store and you are good to go!

Your device will need to be connected to your wifi.

When the student is ready to sing along, he/she clicks on the QR reader and scans the code that is printed on the song page.

AND there you have it!   Let the fun begin!

The lyrics and tune will play and your little sweeties can sing along!

    I’ve been having a hard time downloading the poem videos to use in class. Has anyone else had trouble? And can you give me some advice on how to solve this issue? I have followed the directions and it just doesn’t seem to work for me.

      I have not heard this before. Sometimes schools block Google drive access which could be the issue. Are you able to stream them through VIMEO? If you want to email me, I might be better able to help you. Technology can be frustrating, so I don’t want you to be frustrated. [email protected]

      I had to have my tech guy show me how to extract the files. I couldn’t get them to load the zip drive either. It’s something about extracting the files.
