Vocabulary Choice Board with Google Slides!

We know that students learn differently; therefore, student choice and autonomy is an essential component to personalized learning. Why not use Google Slides to help customize instruction to the needs of your students?

Choice Board in Google Slides: 

A very simple way to personalize learning is creating a Choice Board in Google Slides. I created a sample choice board for vocabulary practice for students; however, you can customize my choice board to meet the needs of your students. Check out my sample here.

How Does It Work? 

Students can choose 3 activities that will meet their needs. They simply drag and drop the X over top of the activity on the choice board when completed.

Students complete each activity and insert their work inside of the assigned slide, much like a portfolio. This makes it easy to organize and reference. If you are a Google Classroom user, then you can make individual copies for each student.


Choice may not always be appropriate for a lesson; however, when it is, Choice Boards are an excellent tool to provide flexibility when necessary. You can design and customize your very own board to practice vocabulary, complete a project or review material.


  1. How perfect it was that the first post I see on my twitter feed was your vocabulary choice board. I've been thinking about creative, interactive ways for my students to practice math vocabulary, especially my English Language Learners.
    Hope you and your family are doing well during this very challenging time.
    Thank you so much for sharing this idea!
