A writing prompt can be a question, a short statement or an idea to help students get started with the sometimes difficult writing process. Integrate a small piece of technology by infusing the QR Code writing prompt cube! Follow the step by step directions below to create your classroom QR Code Cube.
Generate a writing prompt. For example, ‘Write about a time when you felt proud.” Create six writing prompts. If you are having difficulty coming up with your own writing prompts take a look at Buzzfeed. Buzzfeed has gathered different ideas from around the web. Check them out!
Choose a QR Code Generator to create the code.
Paste your writing prompt in the text area of the QR Code generator. Create the code. Download and save the QR Code you created. Repeat for all six writing prompts.
Use and print this template for a printable cube.
Print the six codes out and use a copy machine to create your dice template OR print the codes and attach them to a wooden or foam block.
If you just want to print a cube and try it, Tony Vincent has an amazing cube of questions already created.
There are many QR Code readers. Currently my favorite QR code scanning app is i-nigma. It’s available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry. Go to i-nigma.mobi on your device to download it.
