I created this as a more attractive way to present a menu of assignments for the students in my reading class. Our school has adopted the Comprehensive Literacy program and has been directed to use a Reader's Workshop menu for independent work while the teacher works with a small group. I used an actual restaurant menu template with added sophisticated cafe clipart. The menu items are listed under the categories of required (must complete both), vocabulary (must choose one item), and reader's response (must choose one item). Each item (assignment) "costs" $25pts....equalling 100 points earned once all items are complete. I chose to call my "restaurant" the Room 329 Reading Cafe, and added the history, the hours of our reading class, and our school's address to personalize it.
