**Many Ways to Use this Choice Board**

♥Encourage students to complete a variety of problems, making at least one straight line, like in Tic-Tac-Toe.

♥Differentiate by assigning certain problems to certain students.

♥Direct students to complete any problems they would like, totalling 10 hearts.

♥Students can work in partnerships, choosing a problem and agreeing on an answer before checking the answer key*.

♥Fast finishers can complete another “round” of problems. They use a new recording sheet to complete a different problem from each row.

**Included**

♥Choice Board: It includes 12 Valentine’s Day themed problems, each marked with hearts to indicate difficulty level. All problems focus on Writing Equations.

♥Student Work Recording Sheet

♥Answer Key: The answer key is designed to be self-checking and for student use. Place a sticky note over each answer. Once students have completed a problem, they should find an “Answer Key Station” in the classroom and peek under just the sticky note they need. This instant feedback helps students to avoid making the same mistake across an entire assignment. When they discover they have an incorrect answer, they should revise and rework the problem until they arrive at the correct answer. Knowing the correct answer provides students a target for their hard work. It also frees teachers up to provide instruction to small groups or 1:1 coaching!
