What is a QR Code?

A Quick Response Code is a digital image that can be scanned without the beam of light needed to scan barcodes at the supermarket. It's used in advertising and marketing for smartphone users. You may have seen QR codes on flyers, subway posters, brochures and even cereal boxes. They are often accompanied with a message that says, "For more information scan this code." They can be scanned using one of the many free QR scanner apps available for smartphones and tablets. When you scan the code, you'll be taken directly to a website.

QR Codes are Easy to Make

Websites like Qurify.com(3) allow you to generate your own QR code for free. Copy and paste a long web address, and they’ll create a code that is unique to that particular website. You can save, print and distribute the QR code to all.

Cereal Box Book Report due April 30th,

Test-taking Tips1. Reassure your child that he or she does not have to answer all the questionscorrectly to pass. It is not expected that students answer every question correctly.
2. Tell your child to attempt to answer all of the questions and not to leave any blanks. There is no penalty for guessing, and students can get partial credit on the open-ended items.
3. Remind your child that the test is important.
4. Explain to your child the importance of using time wisely. If your child gets stuck on a question, encourage him or her to make the best guess or place a mark in the test booklet by that item and go back to it after finishing that section of the test.
5. Make certain your child gets a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast before taking the test.
6. Try to make the morning of the test a pleasant one. Do not add to your child’s stress.
7. Get your child to school on time the day of the test.
8. Remind your child to listen carefully to the instructions from the teacher and to read the directions and each question carefully.
9. Encourage your child to stay focused on the test, even if other students finish early.
10. Remind your child that it is okay to mark in the test booklet as a help in taking the test -- i.e., underlining important words, etc. -- but to mark all answers on the answer sheet.
