Anchor Photos

I finally found some time to take pictures of the current anchor charts up in my class for Tales of Frogs and Cupcakes' Anchor Linky Party! Yeah!!!

Here's what I've got for you.

We are starting a 5 week long unit on inferring and media forms. This is the schema chart we made together today before we started the diagnostic task. I am excited to start this unit and apprehensive at the same time. I am a little worried about my students being able to do's hoping.

We just finished the Writer's Notebook assignment that I posted about here and this is the anchor chart that we created together before starting to create our good copies.

Fiction vs. Non-Fiction Anchor chart- we are using this as a part of our ongoing study of genres and features of non-fiction.

Our first novel read aloud of the year is Frindle by Andrew Clements and as we read through the book the students will be retelling each chapter in the form of a story board. This is the chart we created together to help us remember the elements we need to include in our retells. I found this chart on Pinterest and LOVED it so mine looks pretty much EXACTLY like the one I found...but I can't find the original owner to give credit  because the blog/site wasn't pinned. If you know the original owner or are the original owner PLEASE let me know. 

Lastly, this is the chart we created together to help us choose just right books. I had the students differentiate between challenging books and too hard books because I wanted them to challenge themselves some of the time without feeling like the books had to be monsters!

Thanks for sharing!!! I need to work on keeping charts (anchor charts) up in the classroom longer. I tend to do all my stuff on my Smartboard, and not as much on paper..... THANKS
