I love anchor charts, I love looking at anchor charts on Pinterest, I love co-creating anchor charts with my students. I don’t always love how they turn out – or how my printing starts to drift or squish together – but I do love anchor charts. I keep some anchor charts displayed on binder rings for students or myself to refer to – but there are just too many and sometimes we need more information that what we have on the anchor chart so….this year I made anchor binders. I made binders for each of our math strands. The strand we are working on is on the shelf right underneath current anchor charts.
The other binders are on the shelf with all the other math tools and with our language anchor charts.
Each binder is divided into additional sections. What is in these binders you may ask. Three things: 1. Pictures of our anchor charts.
2. Posters I made to explain to explain terms or concepts and procedures or checklists.
3. Learning goals and success criteria.
These binders are helpful to not only my students but to me – so I can keep track of what I used/made for the following year!
