href="">Math Choice Boards. However, these choice boards are mix and match, which means you get to differentiate and choose which projects you want the students to choose from. If there is a unit that your students struggle with, include that unit on your Choice Board for as many weeks as your students need it.

Each project is on one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper so that students can see read them from anywhere in the room if they are on a bulletin board.

Instead of having to copy a paper for each student, you just need to print out the projects you want to include in your Choice Board and hang them up on a bulletin board in the classroom.

You can have the students do as little or as many as you want, and you enforce that students do one or two activities in particular if you choose. You can have the Choice Boards be independent projects or partner projects.

The topics are:
~ Addition - 9 activities
~ Subtraction - 9 activities
~ Multiplication - 9 activities
~ Division - 9 activities
~ All Operations - 9 activities
~ Place Value - 9 activities
~ Place Value Decimals - 9 activities
~ Factors - 9 activities
~ Fractions and Decimals - 9 activities
~ Equivalent Fractions - 9 activities
~ Geometric Figures - 9 activities
~ Measurement - Volume - 9 activities
~ Measurement - Weight - 9 activities
~ Measurement - Length - 9 activities
~ Perimeter and Area - 9 activities
~ Multiples - 9 activities
~ Estimation - 10 activities
~ Time and Temperature - 9 activities

There is a selection of activities for each subject, many of them repeated as needed. Once my students knew my expectations and how to do a certain project, they felt more confident and were more successful in choosing the same project in a different topic. Students will be able to use the techniques, strategies, and activities that they are familiar with and transferring them to different topics.

Some of the projects include:
~ Create a poster
~ Create an anchor chart
~ Design a computer project
~ Design and create a game
~ Create a 10-question quiz
~ Create a foldable

My students enjoyed being able to find a project that they liked and being able to do that project again. It also saved me time so that I didn't have to reinvent the wheel and teach them new projects each week. It was a win-win for both of us; my students were able to work independently on their projects (without any help from me) while I was able to work with my small groups.

A grading rubric along with a self evaluation is also included for you to use in assessing the Choice Boards.

My students loved Choice Boards. My students worked on their Choice Boards while I met with my small groups for reteaching. They loved to be able to choose how they showed me what they know. I even used their posters in my classroom and their created word problems in their homework and quizzes.
