A little anchor chart action...

Just a few of our latest anchor charts to share with you guys today! Some are in English, some Spanish- but they could work for either or-- just a little translatin ;)!

On Friday, we went over the parts of a plant and created this quick anchor chart:

Then my students created these cute little flip books describing the purpose of each part:

Today, we discussed what a plant needs to survive and created this anchor chart:

You can grab the flip book as well as activity pages to go along with these anchor charts in English and Spanish as part of my "A Little Dirt Never Hurt" unit. Click on the image if you are feelin the urge to check it out!

To continue on our anchor chart journal...we finished up our review of long vowels today and created this anchor chart as a source of reference for our "sound" wall!

(Don't judge the "Hola!"- I realized I wrote it in Spanish after I snapped the photo. A little language confusion on my part! - Gotta change that tomorrow ;)- It's hard to keep it straight sometimes!)

Finally- I just recently ordered these genre posters from "Really Good Stuff" -which I love! They are super colorful- and the best part is they come in English...and are you ready for this....SPANISH too!

Aren't they pretty. There is the big yellow one that shares all of the genre names. Then there are little definition posters that go along with it, and a space to select one of the definition posters to put in the middle of the main one. It's great because you can place your focus genre there! I just love them because they are so colorful. Check out how they spice up our library area "reading" wall...

Are you lovin' that pop of color as much as I am?!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only anchor chart addict out there! I have very little wall space in my room and I'm having to cycle them out sooner than I'd like. Thanks for sharing!!
