Kristen from Ladybug’s Teacher Files and Ms. M have collaborated in an Anchor Chart Linky Party. It is all about the Anchor Charts! Every year my room is covered with charts. I love them! I’m sad to say that the time is coming when I will have to take them down. It is always sad not only for me but for my students. They rely on these charts and feel ownership.
Here are a couple of my favorites. Until the past couple of years, most of my anchor charts have been centered around Language Arts. After seeing the power in those, I started incorporating Math also. This was an interactive chart. We copied each figure and tested for rotational symmetry. It was a great visual for students.
This chart, which has turned more into a wall, has worked wonders. It provides students with a visual of the root word and prefix and/or suffix. Around each word the meaning of the prefix and suffix is given along with spelling changes that may have occurred. I laminate these words and am able to use them over again each year. The only thing that I replace is the paper. We add the words as they are introduced. By the end of the year, we have approximately 100 words.
