Use these differentiated
picture notes to introduce critical content and vocabulary of setting, characters, plot, theme, exposition, conflict, rising action, turning point, falling action and resolution by having your students record their knowledge with Pixanotes™! Then afterwards, have students play the included dominoes game to practice their learning!
Pixanotes™ are a synergy of traditional 2-column notes and interactive notebooks consisting of content on the right and picture flaps to illustrate key ideas on the left!
Short on time? No Problem!
Pixanotes use picture flaps that require minimal cutting and gluing so that you can get the benefit of using the kinesthetic intelligence without the hassle of sacrificing an entire class period to do it! OR simply use the Pixanotes with the pre-printed pictures and fill-in-the-blanks!
Absent students? Easy Fix!
Simply give your absent students the pre-printed Pixanotes that have all the content and pictures already present.
Do you have students with accommodations? No Worries!
Pixanotes™ are fully differentiated! This file offers Pixanotes in these formats:
★ Pixanotes™ with Pre-printed Pictures and fully printed content (highest level of structure) Serves as a reference where students may be directed to highlight key terms by the teacher.
★ Pixanotes™ with fully printed content but no pre-printed pictures (moderate level of structure) Students match the picture flaps with the correct content.
★ Pixanotes™ with pre-printed pictures and blanks (moderate level of structure) Students fill in the blanks but have the clue of the visual already present.
★ Pixanotes™ with no pre-printed pictures and blanks (lowest level of structure) Students fill in the blanks and then match up the picture flaps to the correct content.
➤ NOW this Pixanotes™ resource also comes with a Dominoes Game to use as an activity to practice with the content from the notes!
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!
Any way you go, you’ll find that students will experience more success with Pixanotes™ because there are more cues for them to use to retain content!
