LessonPix (Twitter @lessonpix) is a web service for creating classroom visuals. The tool offers over 30,000 scalable images and many templates for creating almost any kind of visual that teachers use. The images can be used within the service, or exported for use in Word, PowerPoint, and other software. Subscribers can also upload their own pictures, and if you cannot find a picture that meets your needs, you can submit a request to have one created. Everything that you create is saved in your online dashboard and can be shared on social media or embedded on a website or blog.

I purchased my subscription a few years ago and have created visual schedules, picture cards, tracking charts, clothespin cards, social stories, and other items. The gallery above shows the steps to create a four-step visual schedule. There is also a large Sharing community of other subscribers who make their items available to other teachers, which is very helpful if you need something quickly. Make sure to check out their YouTube channel for video tutorials, too.
LessonPix works in the web browser, and I have used it on Windows, Android, and iPad. The annual subscription costs just $36, which is a substantial cost saving compared to BoardMaker Online, which is $99 per year. For teachers that regularly use custom visuals in the classroom, particularly with special needs students, LessonPix is a solid, affordable service.[Disclosure: All blog posts are written by Andrea.
