So . . I love anchor charts just as much as the next girl, BUT I have issues with finding a space to put them. I hate hanging them up because I have limited space and the space I have requires me to stand on top of furniture and tip toes. (I am not very tall!) I also don't like feeling cluttered. (You wouldn't know this by looking at my desk though) A goal for myself this year was to only make anchor charts about things that were important. Well, turns out everything is important and I still don't have any more space than I had before. I also work in a year-round school and my grade level will probably be changing rooms when we track out next year!
So my question is this:
HOW DO I ORGANIZE ALL OF MY STINKIN' ANCHOR CHARTS?
I mean, I am making them in math, in writing, in social studies AND in reading. (The only reason I don't make them in science is because my pal across the hall teaches this to my kiddos). I am sick and tired of putting them up and down with magnets. There has got to be a better way. HELP.
That being said, here are a few of my favorite math anchor charts that I have come across recently.
I think the charts with lots of white space and a few important points are most effective, like these!
