To summarize this activity, we used QR codes to practice building compound words. Students would scan a QR code. Upon scanning, a word would be revealed. After having the word displayed on their tablet, they had to search around the room for other classmates that had the other parts to their compound words. For example, if student one had rain, student two had coat and student three had raincoat, they had to find each other to build their compound word. Check out some of the steps below for this process.
Building Compound Words
Once everyone had found their group, we read through them as a class. Students returned to their seats, passed their QR Code to their neighbor and the process was repeated again.
While we did this activity on the LearnPad, the same thing could be done on the iPad as well. For the iPad, we would have used the app called Qrafter to scan the codes. Regardless of using the LearnPad or iPad, both devices would allow you to complete this activity the exact same. With this being said, I would give a tie to building compound words on the LearnPad and iPad.
