Have students explore informational text with this Digital Nonfiction Reading Response Choice Board for Google Drive™. This choice menu contains engaging and paperless activities for students to respond to nonfiction texts they read. Great way to differentiate for your learners! Students must have their own Google account in order to use this product. This will work on Chromebooks™, laptops and computers. This can be used on iPads but some of the tech tools might need to be swapped out to fit with apps on your devices.
Be sure to check out my blog post about DIGITAL choice boards: 5 REASONS TO USE DIGITAL CHOICE BOARDS☺
The choice board contains 9 different digital activities that can be marked off as they are completed by dragging the translucent red "Xs" to lay on top of the rectangles that describe each activity. The text on the choice menu is EDITABLE so you can change out or rearrange the activities to fit your needs. Students can use it like a tic-tac-toe board OR you could have them complete all of the activities throughout the week. Think of it like a hyperdoc or hyperslide :)
IMPORTANT! This product does NOT teach you HOW to use these tools. Students must be familiar with how to use Google Slides and Google Drawing. The free web tools that are linked in are very intuitive for upper elementary and middle school students.
Activities that make up the choice menu (EDITABLE!):
★ Map It: Students will use the included graphic organizer on Slide 4 to map out the main idea and details of their reading.
★ Video It: Students will use Video Recorder to videotape themself giving an opinion about their daily reading.
★ Make a Diagram: Students will click on the link that will open a blank Google Drawing canvas. They will use the tools to create a chart or diagram of the information from their reading.
★ Fast Facts: Students will visit the Note.ly website (they will NOT sign-in) to type out 5 facts on separate sticky notes. They are challenged to see if they can figure out how to make each sticky note a different color ;)
★ Text Features: Students will use the template on Slide 5 to type in the text features from their reading: title, subtitle, and headings.
★ Record It: Students will use Vocaroo to record themself asking 3-5 questions they still have about their nonfiction passage, article or book.
★ Vocabulary: Students will use the template on slide 6 to type in 3 bolded words from their reading. They will use the built in dictionary tool to look up their definitions and then will type a definition in their own words in the definition boxes.
★ Capture It: Students will use the template on Slide 7 to take a picture of the different nonfiction features from their reading using their device's camera or webcam. They will be asked to take a picture of: the table of contents, a bolded word, picture with a caption, a photograph, a diagram/chart/table, and the glossary.
★ Draw It: Students will us Google Autodraw to draw an item or set of items that could go along with their daily reading.
All web tools are hyperlinked (including opening a new Drawing) so students can quickly and easily access the tool they need.
An EDITABLE grading rubric that you can either print and fill in or keep digital as well as 3 editable slides for students to add links/screenshots to their creations is included.
