Pixanotes™ are a synergy of traditional 2-column notes and interactive notebooks consisting of fill-in-the-blanks for content on the right and picture flaps to illustrate key ideas on the left!
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 moveable pieces!

When you use Pixanotes™ with fill-in-the-blanks for content, then students can move words into the blanks and drag and drop pictures next to the definitions for a digital interactive notebook experience!
Pixanotes™ are fully differentiated! This file also offers:
★ Pixanotes™ with moveable pictures and no blanks (highest level of structure)
★ Pixanotes™ with pre-placed pictures and moveable words for the blanks (moderate level of structure)
★ Pixanotes™ with moveable pictures and moveable words for the blanks (lowest level of structure)

so you can choose to print out your Pixanotes™ for students who are required to have paper copies as per their IEP or other plan.
