This menu can be edited to allow students to work at their individual ability levels during independent reading work. This matrix follows the reading workshop model. I use this matrix and change it weekly and students have the entire week to complete all of the YOU MUST activities (usually six) that go along with the reading skill/s we are learning about each week. There are also some YOU MAY options on the menu for your early finishers.
This matrix is completely editable and can be adapted to whatever you are teaching each week with little work since the template is already laid out for you. This product includes a sample of one week of work for a fifth grade class, but can be adapted for any grade level 2-5.
