I would use QR Codes in my kindergarten classroom to:
- Advertise school events or classroom announcements
- Use the QR Codes as a scavenger hunt game where students can search the classroom/school to answer a question or clue
- Link to a variety of children's books
- Use the codes for a variety of counting activities that children can use and play to help them develop number sense
Here is a link to create your own QR Codes:
Here you can do a ton of cool things with QR Codes like change the colour of your QR Code for different events.
As I got to thinking of different activities to do with the kindergarten class I found the blog Technology in Early Childhood. In this blog kindergarten teachers post different activities young children can do using technology. There was a link to QR Codes for kindergarten classrooms where there are a ton a different activities and bar codes to use in the classroom. Such as counting games, activity sheets or sliders to help young children match words to texts.
