Anchor charts build a culture of literacy in the classroom, as teachers and students make thinking visible by recording content, strategies, processes, cues, and guidelines during the learning process. Students are constantly reminded of prior learning within the classroom when teachers post anchor charts and allow them access to the charts. The students are able to make connections as new learning happens to prior learning by referring to the anchor charts. Many students refer to the charts and use them as tools as they answer questions, expand ideas, or contribute to discussions and problem-solving in class. Give Anchor Charts a chance in your classroom to help guide and make learning more visible for students.
Below are a few anchor charts found in classrooms within our district.
