Anchor Chart Linky

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.

To find more anchor charts or to link up, stop by Ladybug's Teacher Files or Ms. M's!
