Anchor Charts
What are anchor charts?

Anchor charts are a great way to make


thinking visible as you record
strategies, processes, cues, guidelines
and other content during the learning
process. (weareteachers.com)
Anchor Chart 411
● Made with your students
● Have a plan of what you want
to model
● Used to model thought or
learning process
● Kept in consistent and central
location
● Keep unused ones in a
consistent location to use
later
Anchor Chart Brainstorming
On your sheet, create a sketch of an anchor chart that you could possibly use in your grade or content
area. If you are not sure, create one on a subject area that you enjoy teaching. You will have ten minutes
to sketch and share with your table. Each table will share after the ten minutes.
Word Walls
● Utilized by students to help in recalling vocabulary and key concepts
● On-going building process
● Required in ALL classrooms
Exit Ticket
On a sticky note, answer the following questions:

1. What grade/subject are you teaching this year?


2. What classroom organization tip did you like best?
3. What content area/topic do you see anchor charts being useful for students?
4. Ideally, how would you lay out your word wall? (by content area, by chapter/concept, abc order, etc)
