This digital choice board for Google Drive™ contains engaging and paperless activities for students to use and practice their vocabulary words in context. Great way to differentiate for your learners! Students must have their own Google account in order to use this product. This will work on Chromebooks™, laptops and computers. It is NOT intended for iPads.
Be sure to check out my blog post about DIGITAL choice boards: 5 REASONS TO USE DIGITAL CHOICE BOARDS☺
The digital choice board contains 9 different digital activities that can be marked off as they are completed by dragging the translucent red "Xs" to lay on top of the rectangles that describe each activity. The text on the chart is EDITABLE so you can change out or rearrange the activities to fit your needs. Students can use it like a tic-tac-toe board OR you could have them complete all of the activities throughout the week.
IMPORTANT! This product does NOT! teach you HOW to use these tools. Students must be familiar with how to use Google Docs, Google Slides and Google Drawing. The web tools that are linked in are very intuitive for upper elementary and middle school students.
Three word maps are also provided that serve as one of the activities students can choose from to complete for vocabulary practice. Duplicate as many as you need throughout the year! (3 different colors) They are set to print on 11x8.5 paper if you want a hard copy.
Activities that make up the choice menu (EDITABLE!):
★ Create a Meme: Create a meme about 1 of your words using Addtext.com. Be sure to find a copyright free image! Photos for Class and Pixabay are great places to look.
★ Create a Crossword Puzzle: Use Puzzle Maker to create a crossword puzzle using all of your vocabulary words.
★ Make a Cartoon: Use Toony Tool to create a cartoon scene using 2 of your words.
★ Make a Comic: Use Make Beliefs Comixs to create a comic using 3 of your vocabulary words.
★ Map It: Use the vocabulary maps on the provided slides to map out 3 of your vocabulary words (definition, synonyms, part of speech and use it in a sentence).

All web tools are hyperlinked (including opening a new Doc/Drawing) so students can quickly and easily access the tool they need.
