Learning Menus

I am really focusing on differentiated instruction this year. I want to try and meet every student at their own instructional level. I know the group coming up has so real low students and several gifted students. I was wondering on organizational methods that you use that work to help differentiate...but also any reproducible activities that you may have already created and want to share.

Specifically, I am looking to create learning menus for my gifted students before school starts. Subjects include: 4th grade Math: place value, adding and subtracting large whole numbers, x, division, fractions, measurement, geometry.

I will also be new to teaching science as well. So any learning menus or differentiated projects would be VERY helpful! Thanks!

I love using menus with my gifted students. Here's a resource I use. I purchased all the books and love them all because my students loved them.

There is a wonderful book- Differentiating Instruction with Menus - from fruprockpress.com and they have one for math, one for language arts, one for science and also one for social studies. It has everything you are looking for....

Hope it works for you!!

I used both these resources to create a place value menu this weekend. I am not sure how to attach it, but it you pm me maybe I can send it to you in an email attachment. It would be great if we could share our menus- they are time consuming to make!

I am interested in using differentiated instruction in my classroom, however this is the first I heard of menus. Would love for you to send me one and if I am able I will try to create some on other concepts. Thanks.
