Managing home communication is difficult, especially when a teacher has multiple classes of several different grade levels. Keeping a written communication system with parents can become tedious as behavior logs get “lost” and are never seen by a parent.
In an effort to streamline parent communication regarding missing assignments, recurrent behaviors, and the like, I created these email QR codes. When scanned, a personalized email will appear on my device, ready to be sent to that student’s parent.
Because the emails share a common subject line, I can easily search back in my “Sent” emails to reference the date that a student missed an assignment or showed a certain behavior. Parents appreciate the immediate notification, and students grow in accountability for their behavior and assignments. Fortunately, the need for the QR codes always decreases as the year goes on!
IMPORTANT: Before you begin, make sure you have a compatible QR scanning application.
NOT ALL QR SCANNING APPS WILL SUPPORT THESE TYPES OF QR CODES.
Use your iPhone/iPad camera: If you have an iPhone or iPad that runs iOs 11 (or higher), you can simply use your iPhone camera! More directions regarding this option can be found later in this resource.
Download the App “QR Square”: This app is one of the few free QR scanners that will correctly read these QR codes.
If you are using an Android device, please reference the “Alternative Methods” page of this resource.
