You head to Pinterest to find an anchor chart.  It’s super cute!  It’s colorful, nice and neat, and the graphics are amazing!  Who has time for that!?!?


Do you know how many pieces of chart paper that I have wasted trying to create the perfect anchor chart?  A LOT!  I am a perfectionist.  When you mix this perfectionist with chart markers and a lack of time to create it, it turns out to be not so perfect which in turns creates the”necessity” to redo it!  It’s a never ending battle.

So, here is my solution.  I’m making anchor chart templates so that I can use them now and then refer back to them when I need them.  Since I’m sharing them with you, I’m hoping they will help you out as well!
