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 understand and remember more content - including those students with special needs or limited English.
What are Pixanotes®?
Pixanotes® are a blend of traditional 2-column notes and interactive notebooks that use visuals to boost comprehension and recall!
Combine the right brain benefits of the visuals with the left brain advantages of the structure to 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 & 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 PowerPoint or Video.
★ 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

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!
