This set of documents is used for independent reading time to hold students accountable for their work and learning. This set includes an independent reading contract, a fiction choice menu, and a nonfiction choice menu. Students are allowed to select their own book on their level (or the teacher can select if desired). Students complete a series of appetizers, main dishes, sides, and desserts. All students must complete all main dishes. Students have a choice with which appetizers and sides to complete, and desserts are optional extra credit. These files are Word documents and are completely editable to fit your students' needs. All activities are designed to encourage in depth reading and response from students.
