Invigorate Classwork with a Voice and Choice Board (using Google Forms)

Simplify the juggling of multiple activities and different paces of students by using a voice and choice board.

A voice and choice board starts by asking a question. Students who answer correctly are sent to the voice and choice board where they have the freedom to choose what activity they complete.  The students love being in control of their assignments.  They are excited to do the work because they picked it.  I've found that I may be met with added enthusiasm if I put a regular worksheet or activity on this board instead of on its own.

For the students who get the first question wrong, they are sent to a remediation video.  After watching this video, the students get a second chance.  All of the students who get it correct are sent to the voice and board.  Students who get it incorrect are sent to the teacher for help.  This method quickly gets you the students who are in need of the most help in a small group setting.  

The beauty of the choice board is no more juggling different papers or stopping when a student needs the next activity; it's all there.  You can also do a paper version but I suggest you have a table or desk in your room for all the activity printouts.  You can put in the directions on the form where to pick the copy up. 

Learn how to make your own with the below video or you can use my existing voice and choice board template

I hope you find these as helpful as I have in my classroom.

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

  This template is set for 3 sets of answers.  I have the answers that are currently set, you will need to reformat them to use with your content.   Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template Be on the lookout for this activity given 2 ordered pairs and asking for slope, y-intercept, and the equation of a line.  I'm also formatting this for converting between percents, decimals, and fractions.  If you want to reformat it before I post the above activities here is how. 

Long Division in Google Docs

  I was making a long division worksheet for my students in Google Docs when I realized that it wasn't under equations. Here's how to insert it.  This does not look very pretty so I have another video on how I do it in Google Sheets which takes longer but looks nicer. 

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
