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 icons to represent typical daily activities such as brushing your teeth, etc.... Then, place the icons on the 123 Tiles to have your robot move about them in the order you choose to tell a story.
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 the Coder cards to put them in the correct order.
Human Coder
Become the 123 Coder! Using classroom materials or 123 Tiles create a short maze for the 123 Robot to navigate. With a friend, one person becomes the Coder and the other will manually move the 123 Robot using the touch buttons on the top. The person acting as the Coder will have to tell the person controlling the 123 Robot how to move in order to escape the maze.
Memory Cards
Place a few different “treasure” cards and “blank” 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 - if you can remember where they are!
Robot Draw
Attach a marker to the front of the 123 Robot. Program it to draw a shape!
Mystery Coder Card
Create your own Coder card! Draw and explain what it does.
