Choice Boards - Can't Wait to Use Them!

I went to a Professional Development seminar this weekend. After all the snow days in my area, I was glad to get out of the house and go! It was actually snowing as I made my way to the seminar, Wow, I am so glad I went. I had never heard of using choice boards for differentiated instruction, and I spent the remainder of my weekend doing research on this. Choice boards allow a student based on his readiness level to choose educational activiites that the teacher selects. The activities are based on the following learning styles: visual,auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile.I love them! I can't wait to use them in the classroom. I hope my students will be as excited about them as I am. This is a great site to start as there are several examples of choice boards here.
