One thing I have promised myself that I would do more of this year is to create anchor charts. I’ve been creating them for our reading, writing, and literacy work station times/areas. Here are some examples
I’ve found that not only do these charts help the students remember what to do, they cut down on lots of behavior problems because the children know exactly what they are supposed to be doing because they suggested the ideas on the chart.
We create these charts together after lots of modeling from the children and myself. Writers workshop has been great so far because the children can tell you exactly what they should be doing and how they should be doing it.
How do you store your anchor charts?
