Today I wanted to share my take on anchor charts. I'm not much of an artist but I try my best to make my anchor charts visually appealing to the students by substituting with clip art, photographs, and other graphics when necessary.
I make most of my anchor charts with my students so it's important to have the images prepared before hand and to have a rough idea how I want the charts to look. Sometimes I'll sketch them out while I write my lesson plans.
These first two were before I truly started the Daily five.
The anchor charts below are for the comprehension strategies from Mosaic of Thought. When I introduce Determining Importance in reading I also introduce Heart Maps in writing.
Vocabulary anchor charts - we also had one for antonyms and multiple meaning words.
This one I saw on Pinterest.
This one is not technically an anchor chart. It's a poster I made on my computer and then I enlarged it and laminated it.
Math - decomposing numbers above 10 into tens and more ones.
