Free, Printable QR-Coded Classroom Rules

By Christy Crawford
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5

    Make reviewing school rules fun with my printable QR codes and your smartphone or tablet. QR codes make the task easy and quick, plus you only need one mobile device.

    1. Download a free QR code reader such as NeoReader or Kaywa Reader for your device.

    2. Scan the codes below to activate more than a dozen text or audio rules. (Check out QR voice to easily make your own in just two or three seconds.)

    3. Choose your favorite rule codes and:

    • Print, cut out the code, and pin on a bulletin board for a “Rules Game Show.”

    • Print them on heavy cardstock for eager rule reviewers to hold as their classmates scan.

    • Staple them on sentence strips to make QR-coded "rule hats."

         

    1. RAISE YOUR HAND. WAIT FOR PERMSSION TO SPEAK.

     

     

     

    2. BE A GOOD FRIEND.

     

     

     

    3. SHARE LEARNING MATERIALS AND SPACE.

     

     

     

     

    4. KEEP GERMS TO YOURSELF — COVER YOUR MOUTH WHEN YOU COUGH, YAWN, OR SNEEZE.

     

     

     

    5. FOLLOW DIRECTIONS . . . THE FIRST TIME.

    10. KEEP YOUR HANDS (AND FEET) TO YOURSELF.

     

     

     

    11. BE A GOOD LISTENER.

    12. TAKE CARE OF OUR PROPERTY.

     

     

     

    13. STAY ON TASK.

    Let kids take turns scanning the QR-coded hats or heavy cardstock printouts, and then have them read a rule out loud. The first rule to scan? “Take Care of Our Property" or, as we say in tech class, “Love the equipment. Share the equipment. Respect the equipment.”

    Remind your students that digital devices are like babies and need to be treated delicately to function. Every year, my kindergarten, first-, and second-grade students spend the first few minutes of class passing our “baby” (my personal cell phone or a school iPad) gently around the room. We sing to the “baby.” We hug it. Get your kids to respect the class “baby” for this scanning exercise, and you won’t be disappointed.
