Whether you are a teacher needing to send home work with students for distance learning, a parent filling in gaps during breaks or summer, a homeschooling parent, a teacher planning an extended absence from your classroom, or a teacher teaching online for any number of reasons, these standards-based student-choice menu boards are no prep, highly engaging, and purposeful.

Student Experience: Students choose six of the nine activities/tasks per week. Students can choose from reading, writing, making videos, listening to a podcast, and more. Each task is specifically written to address an ELA standard, so that no time is wasted. The topics and activities are relevant to teens and are sure to extend and enhance learning in any setting. Students will be engaged, not just busy!


  • 9 varying activities each week (writing, reading, grammar, listening, and research -- all covered)
  • three weeks
  • editable
  • answers included where applicable

**Some activities require Internet and some do not, so you can meet all your students' needs.
