I live and die by anchor charts!  I am not an artist by any means but I will say that since I have been using anchor charts my students retention levels have increased.  I must confess I have gotten most (maybe all) of my anchor chart ideas from Pinterest.

Last year I struggled with making my anchor charts not look like the kids had done them or doing them over for the next class, so this summer I decided to make them ahead and laminate.   I know this is a big no-no because all my PD’s say to do them as you teach so I did leave some parts blank to make them interactive and I can erase and fill in for each class. (I have rotations)  I did not make them all for the whole year this will be a work in progress.  So I am posting what I have done so far.
