I love anchor charts!  Sometimes I get too caught up in the aesthetic part of them...but I think a visually interesting anchor chart is much better than a boring one!  I make anchor charts WITH the kiddos.  I never make them ahead of time.  We create them as a class during the lesson!  On occasion, PART of the anchor chart will be pre-setup.  But the main content is always created during the mini lesson, with the class.  Anchor charts serve as a collection of our learning.  We use them to hold our thinking.  We use them as a reference in subsequent days, weeks, and months!  Click on the links above to access four pages of anchor charts (I had to split them among four pages because the original anchor chart page was getting TOO LONG.  =D
