Do you teach the ACE method for writing expository paragraphs? Have your students learn what each letter of ACE stands for with these handy, differentiated
Pixanotes™! Then use the included writing frame that features the visuals from the Pixanotes™ to help your students craft a super expository paragraph!
What are Pixanotes™?
Pixanotes™ are a synergy of traditional 2-column notes and interactive notebooks consisting of content on the right and picture flaps to illustrate key ideas on the left!
Do you have students with accommodations?
Pixanotes™ are fully differentiated and come in four different forms but all with the same content:
★ Pixanotes™ with Pre-printed Pictures and no blanks (highest level of structure where students can highlight key ideas)
★ Pixanotes™ with no pictures or blanks (moderate level of structure for students who may be able to match pictures with content.)
★ Pixanotes™ with pre-printed pictures and blanks (moderate level of structure for students who can fill in blanks but not match pictures.)
★ Pixanotes™ with no pictures and fill in the blanks (lowest level of structure for average students.)
Short on time? No worries!
Pixanotes use picture flaps that require minimal cutting and gluing so that you can get the benefit of using the kinesthetic intelligence without the hassle of sacrificing an entire class period to do it! OR simply use the Pixanotes™ with pre-printed pictures and blanks and just have the students fill in the blanks!
Absent students? No Problem!
Simply give your absent students the pre-printed Pixanotes that have all the content and pictures already present.
The Pixanotes™ advantage is in the inclusion of visuals! The pictures serve as memory cues to help students remember the critical information. Plus, they're interactive when you use the flaps!

Any way you go, you’ll find that students will experience more success with Pixanotes™ because there are more cues for them to use to retain content!
