Anchor Chart Organization

When I make photocopies, I think the new teachers in the copy room must be very confused at what grade I teach. With students who are working on skills at the preschool level all the way through a 5th grade level, I feel like I am in a constant of scattered brained mania. At any given moment in my classroom, prepositions and tracing are being simultaneously taught within different centers. To say it’s hard to organize all of this madness, is an understatement. Simply the amount of materials is overwhelming.

I have bene hugely into anchor charts this year. {check out these posts: Reference Pages  and Using Anchor Charts in an Autism Room} I love teaching my students to reference the room as opposed to always asking me. It teaches independence and problem solving skills. However my anchor charts looked as muddled as my photocopy pile. I had to get organized!

I organized my anchor charts into 3 levels based roughly on my 3 groups within my classroom. I used colored tape to separate the groups and clearly labeled each section. Now my students know exactly where to look when needing to reference!

I’m in love with how it turned out! I can’t believe I didn’t use this system before!

  8. Hi Sasha,
    I love your blog and own and use many of your products. I was quite disappointed today to see you use the word spastic in your post. There is so much negativity and stigma around disability already, I was honestly shocked you wrote this.

  9. Thank you for calling me out on this. You are very right. I apologize and am embarrassed I used that term. I edited the post and will make sure it never happens in the future.

  10. Love this idea! Last year was my first year teaching and I had K-4 with varying levels (like you mentioned above). Although I will only have K, 2nd & 3rd this year, my kiddos are still so diverse. I am looking forward to trying this in my class this year 🙂
