Choice Board Examples & Strategies

Use the Choice Board to allow students to display their voice and choice within their learning. The Choice Board can be used in multiple ways by the teacher to:

  • Engage students who finish early
  • Assess what students have learned at different points throughout the Unit
  • Extend the Unit or lesson
  • Allow students to display their learning in the Share section

The Choice Board is intended to provide content that can be added to the classroom’s existing Choice Board or to any bulletin board in the classroom.

The following is the Choice Board for this Unit:

Choice Board
Story in Pictures
Create your own picture cards to represent a daily activity or routine, like brushing your teeth. Then, place the cards on the 123 Tiles and make your robot move to each step in order.
Find the Bug
List the Coder cards used to move the 123 Robot forward 5 spaces, turn left, then move 3 spaces in an incorrect order. Ask a friend to find the "bug", and fix it by putting the Coder cards in the correct order.
Human Coder
Be the 123 Coder! Using classroom materials or 123 Tiles, create a short maze for the 123 Robot to navigate. With a partner, decide who will be the Coder, and who will press the buttons on the 123 Robot. The Coder will then tell their partner how to move the 123 Robot in order to escape the maze.
Memory Cards
Place a few different “treasure” and “blank” cards on the 123 Tiles. Look and remember where the “treasure” cards are. Then, flip all of the cards over. Design a sequence of steps to get the 123 Robot to a “treasure” card - see if you can remember where they are!
Robot Draw
Draw a rectangle or a square on a 123 Tile with a dry-erase marker. Place your 123 Robot on a line, and code it to follow your lines!
Mystery Coder Card
Create your own Coder card! Draw and explain what it does.
