Writing menus are an essential part of my Language Arts program! They provide students with choice and increase the level of engagement- a win for any classroom! For this menu, students are given a goal (a price that they must 'spend' at a restaurant) and they complete questions/projects to reach their goal. They choose from a list of pre-selected writing prompts so they feel in charge and you can feel confident that you are meeting your math outcomes.
1. Tips, tricks and instructions page to get you started if you are new to menus.
2. 3 levels of goals ($10, $22 and $44) for different learners in your room
3. 5 template options with detailed checklists to help students who require extra support and graphic organizers for their writing along with bonus additional prompts of many templates to differentiate for your students
1. Friendly letters
2. Short stories
