I really enjoy using QR codes in speech. They are something different for the kids and bring in that bit of technology that will keep them engaged. When I was at the grocery store the other day I noticed those funny looking little boxes EVERYWHERE! They were on crackers, milk, soda, even my shampoo. So after I put my frozen goods away I got right to creating this new activity. Introducing…Shopping for QR Codes!
This activity uses a grocery store theme to address attributes and a little bit of categorizing via an included worksheet.
Students each get a LISTO board, there are 5 included with the activity. The LISTO board will also act as their grocery list for the worksheet.
LISTO is played just like BINGO. Students select a card (there are 24 ) and read the clues. After they have made a guess about what the mystery item could be, they may check it using a QR Code app. I use Scan for iPhone/iPad, but there are others. After the mystery item is revealed they may cover the matching item on their LISTO board. The first student to get 5 across, up and down, diagonal, really whatever type of pattern you want, wins!
After your game is finished you can used the included worksheet to have students sort some of the items from their grocery list items aka LISTO board into the given categories.
Also included in this activity is a note for parents and an activity that can be play at the grocery store to encourage carryover of the skill. Included is a partially filled in LISTO board. Parents are encouraged to add items from their own grocery list into the blank spaces of the board. As students find the items on the list they state attributes them and cross them off the list.
