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
Sing it!
Create a new verse for the song, “If you're happy and you know it…”. Pair a feeling with an action such as, “If you’re happy and you know it, hug a friend,” or “If you’re frustrated and you know it, ask for help.” How many new verses can you sing? Ask your teacher if you can perform your song!
Tell a Story
Draw or write a short story about a time when your feeling matched an emotion code you created for your 123 Robot.
Make a Mask
Use a paper plate cut in half. Draw a nose and mouth to show an emotion. Glue or tape a popsicle stick on the bottom and use this to hold it up to your face while you show the emotion with your eyes. Ask a classmate to guess what emotion you are showing.
Picture Pair
Draw a picture of two faces or actions showing opposite feelings, and write the emotion to match.
Share Happy
How can you make someone else happy? Do two things in your classroom that will make someone else feel happy.
Create your own Coder card
Draw a new Coder card to have the 123 Robot act out a feeling and explain what the robot does.
