23 September Anchor Charts

Anchor charts

Our busiest  month for anchor chart creation?  September!

When I moved my site to the new server, and transferred from a website to a blog (this blog!), I didn’t create posts to showcase my anchor charts.  On my old site, I had a page full of anchor charts, but I wanted a better way to display them and share them.  I’ve decided to do monthly posts that feature anchor charts created during that particular month.  For September, we created 23 anchor charts.  Contact me if you have questions about a particular anchor chart!

    Jessica, there are so many great ideas. I especially like how you use the students pictures to show the correct behavior. Great idea. Having students model the correct behavior goes a long way.

    This is just the post I need. I have been wanting to do a better job of anchor charts. I have too much of a perfectionist in me and it hinders me at times. Thank you for this post and I look forward to seeing October and November soon 🙂

    Your charts are really to the point. I love them! They are unique with class pictures, too. They really send the message without being too busy. Thank you so much for your ideas!

    Thank you Jessica for your brilliant anchor charts and for sharing your simple and effective class practice with us all.

    I am enjoying Lucy Calkins The Art of Teaching Writing at the moment and especially love your ‘digging deeper’ chart.
    I am re-orientating back to Year 1 after a stint in the upper grades so all hints and ideas very welcome.
