I have used this QR code activity in my literacy centers as a listening center. Students can scan the QR code on their device and listen to the story on You Tube. The link was run through SafeShare so there aren't any advertisements lurking as students are listening. Afterward, they respond to the text by answering the questions. It serves as a great assessment for me to see if students actually understood what they read independently and how I can better help them in reading and writing. Enjoy!
