What are Pixanotes®?
Pixanotes® are a blend of traditional 2-column notes and interactive notebooks that use visuals to boost comprehension and recall!

Say hello to higher test scores!

Pixanotes® are also great for students with special needs or those who are learning English as they are fully differentiated and come in 4 formats!

★Pixanotes® with Pre-printed pictures and fully printed content - PERFECT for ABSENT students!
>This provides the highest level of structure for your most challenged students.
>You could choose to have students highlight key words as you review them.

★Pixanotes® with pre-printed pictures and fill-in-the-blanks - GREAT if you are SHORT on TIME!
>This is for students who need moderate structure and can fill in the blanks but might have a hard time with matching up the pictures.
>Students will fill in the blanks using the word bank.

★ Pixanotes® with fully printed content and no pictures
>This is for students who need a great deal of scaffolding.
>Students match up the picture flaps to the definitions

★Pixanotes® with fill-in-the-blank content and no pictures
>This is for students who need minimal scaffolding.
>Students fill in the blanks first using the word bank and then match up the picture flaps.

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!
