I, like many other teachers, am addicting to collecting beautiful anchor charts on Pinterest. When I collect these, I know very well I cannot possibly recreate them. I am not an artist…I am a teacher. I always admire those teachers who have artistic abilities, but that just isn’t me.
Although I am not the best at making them, I believe strongly in Anchor Charts. At the beginning of the year, my walls are bare. No cutesy posters and decor. Just blank walls. As the year progresses, my walls are quickly filled with anchor charts from all of my minilessons. My students use these charts during a unit, and well after. They serve as a “point of reference” for my students whenever they should need some help.

I hope you enjoyed my anchor charts. Hopefully they gave you some ideas for your own, or maybe they just made you feel better about not be artistic like me 🙂
