Anchor Charts Galore!

September 7 Deedee 1 min read
Wow!  What a difference a week makes!  As you know, last week was like a semi-professional rodeo in my room.  So, I rolled up my sleeves and in 4 short (ok long) days, we seemed to get it together.
Every year I make a “good morning” anchor chart.  I have always hand drawn them, but on Wednesday I broke this dude out and I got ohhhs and ahhhs!

But the cherry on the cake came today.  I revealed this chart!
Before we organized their desks, some looked like a raccoon had taken up residency!
We reorganized our desks today and I am not kidding you when I say, I did not hear, “I can’t find my __________” for the rest of the day.  I almost cried tears of joy!

It is so easy to forget all of the small and large routines we teach.  It takes awhile to build a class that runs itself.  I suspect we have several more weeks towards that goal, but I can see it on the horizon!
I compiled all of my essential charts.  I should have named the file,
Anchor Charts That Will Keep Your Teacher from Joining the Circus.
Here is what is included
Anchor Charts for Kindergarten

If it is worthy of you discussing it  AND you find yourself REPEATING yourself, an anchor chart might be JUST what you need.

How do you use anchor charts to secure classroom expectation?

    Such cute anchor charts- I have been making them like crazy this year. I think they madke a difference and are such good reminders for my little friends who quickly forget.

    I'd like to make them up as magnets for my magnetic white board. They look wonderful. 🙂

    You are amazing! Thanks Deedee!

    Thanks DeeDee! These are just what this exhausted kinder teacher needs! With a number of special needs kids all put in my classroom, super short attention spans, few with any school experience, and a bunch who simply look at me when they don't get what they want or meltdown ~ this teacher is hitting routine HARD next week! We have a staggered start with a small group each day for three days and everyone on Friday it was a tough week. This will be wonderful next week!

    This is genius!

    I just adore ALL of your stuff! I teacher first and second graders (and in the past have taught 3-5 graders), and I still find use for your Kinder-stuff. It is perfect for my firsties, and is PERFECT for my students with special needs, especially my beginning readers. Thank you!

    DO we need a coupon code to get the discount? Are they $5.00?
    I may have to get these, they look so cute and effective. Thank you.

    Oh this is awesome! I forget how important it is to give kids a variety of ways to meet our expectations.
    Where did you find that cubby clipart? It's perfect!

      I got it on TpT. There is a link to the sellers on the final page.

    I especially love the image of how their desk should be organized…I wish I had that when I taught 2nd grade and it might have helped!

    These are great DeeDee! Who do you get your clip art from? Specifically the soap dispenser and the cubbies.

    • Deedee September 18 at 10:19 am

      I got the images from a few places, but mostly TpT. The soap was from Scrappin Doodles.

    Very cute idea! I love the desk anchor chart. Students always need a visual reminder and that is a good idea for desk organization. Thanks for sharing.
