What are doodle notes?

Doodle notes are a visual aid that will increase student concept retention, focus, creativity, and engagement. Students will gain experience in synthesizing information and creating their own tangible connections in their notes.

What do I have to do?

These doodle notes are no prep! Print which version of the doodle notes is most appropriate for your students (easy differentiation!) and use my provided notes or your own. I have included a PowerPoint slide show that includes the answers to the fill-in-the-blank notes. I have also included a student quiz to easily assess student mastery of the doodle notes content.

How do I use doodle notes?

• Teacher led note taking

• Student led note taking

• Independent research or homework

What is included?

1 Fill-in-the-blank-version - use this version for students who struggle with taking notes, ELL students, or reluctant learners.

1 Blank doodle note for using your own notes - this version has my artwork, but not the notes for more independent learners and students who enjoy writing their own notes. You can also use this version with your own notes.

1 Completed example of the doodle note - Use my completed example as a mini anchor chart for your lesson or to share with students.

Student reading passage - this reading passage contains everything your students need to complete the doodle notes. Have students read and underline key passages to help them with reading comprehension and to figure out how to complete the fill-in-the-blank notes.

PowerPoint slides for the fill-in-the-blank notes - this resource is partially editable! You can take out my notes and replace it with your own, the clip art and headings are not editable. Use this with whole class instruction or set it up for individual students to use in stations. The notes are self-guiding and easy to use.

1 Student quiz with teacher key - use these as exit tickets or as a summative assesment when students have completed their notes.
