Two activities in one product! The first is Book Tasting. This product includes a placemat
that students use to "taste" a new book. I use this idea when introducing a new genre or as a process for students to choose books for Book Clubs. Simply print one placemat per student and set out the book choices for them to browse and choose.
The Taste and See Menu
is more for after students have read the book. Just like a real menu, it offers a variety of foods (activities) for students to choose from. You differentiate by determining how much money each student should spend on their meal. Activities use Bloom's stems, depth of knowledge questions, and higher order thinking skills. The more rigorous the activity, the higher the price.
This activity can be a culminating activity for Book Clubs or as a Book Talk presentation, or simply a way to show understanding of their books. It can be completed individually or as a team.
Activities and stems are generic and work for any book.
