This brochure/menu was designed for independent student work through student choice as a companion for the short story, Night of the Pomegrante, and can be taken for a test grade for both Language and Reading if you choose. Each student is given a brochure and chooses which activities he/she wishes to complete. Each menu is designed like a menu inside of a restaurant, complete with appetizer, entree, and dessert (extended activities). The appetizer gives a variety of choices on how to complete their reading vocabulary and/or spelling words for that week or story. Next, each student will choose two entrees to complete. Entrees vary, but cover the same type of material in different ways. Lastly, the extention activities. Extention activities include independent work (with the use of technology) that is research based assignments.
