Are you getting ready for your state's standardized test? Me too - and my 6th graders needed more help with non-fiction text structures! So I made a complete lesson to give my students a boost before the big day!
Pixanotes® are a synergy of traditional two-column notes and interactive notebooks. They are fully differentiated in 4 ways to meet the needs of ALL students including those with special needs or who are English Language Learners. There are versions for absent students and versions for if you are short on time!
Included in this resource:
★ Lesson Plan
★ Entrance/Exit tickets
★ Pixanotes® in 4 varieties:
1. With fully printed content and pre-printed pictures
2. With fully printed content and picture flaps
3. With fill-in-the-blanks for content and pre-printed pictures
4. With fill-in-the-blanks for content and picture flaps
★ A video that students will use to fill in their Pixanotes
★ Texts with questions and Answers for a Practice Activity I call "Vote with your feet"
★ Text Structures posters
★ All answers

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!
