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.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
