Review by: Jeffrey Shoemaker, Gifted Intervention Specialist - May 23, 2016
The differentiating Instruction with Menus series is one of my favorite series. It happens to be one of my most used series to date . . . if I were a teacher who had 3rd through 5th grade students, this book series is one I would get. In regards to Math, what I like about this book are the menus. Laurie gives a short description of the type of menu along with the benefits, limitations, and time considerations. Everything that a teacher would need to know about a type of menu is there. There are also several menus that are listed that a math teacher can use in their classroom linked to State Standards . . . This resource can be used in a classroom setting, or homeschool setting. Not only would I suggest you use this book, but also use the whole series.
 
Review: Mindprint Learning - March 14, 2016

This math workbook is a great supplement for teachers to provide engaging activities for their advanced students to practice and apply math skills. The menus allow students to choose activities that align with their interests and strengths, promoting engagement and ownership of their learning. The activities are hands-on and exercise not only the specific math skill of topic, but also integrate background knowledge and other higher order thinking skills, such as complex reasoning, flexible thinking, and planning.
