Teach and review metaphor and similes with these handy differentiated
picture notes! This is a freebie so you can get to know Pixanotes™ and see how they will help all
your students increase their comprehension and retention including those with special needs or limited English.
Did you know that research has proven that visuals decrease learning time and increase comprehension and recall?
Read more about that here on my blog
. Now you can harness the power of visuals with these Pixanotes™ and reap the benefits!
Pixanotes™ are a synergy of regular 2-column notes and interactive notebooks.
When you use Pixanotes™ with fill-in-the-blanks for content, then students can cut out the picture flaps for a more interactive notebook experience. Later, students can write signal questions under the flaps for a more full Cornell Notes type experience.
Pixanotes™ are fully differentiated! This file also offers:
★ Pixanotes™ with Pre-printed Pictures and no blanks (highest level of structure for students to highlight key ideas.)
★ Pixanotes™ with no pictures or blanks (moderate level of structure for students who can match up pictures to definitions.)
★ Pixanotes™ with pre-printed pictures and blanks (moderate level of structure for students who can fill in blanks but would struggle with matching up pictures.)
Any way you go, you’ll find that students will experience more success with Pixanotes™ because there are more visual cues for them to use to retain content!
