This is a GROWING BUNDLE! As I add more choice boards, the price will increase. Purchase now to save money!
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.
Included for EACH choice board:
• Choice board with color clip art
• Choice board with B&W clip art
• Choice board with NO clip art
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.
Several examples of choice board projects are included to help you as you implement them in your classroom.
