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.
However, I just named them. “Let’s Get Organized: Classroom Management Anchor Charts.”
Here is what is included
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?
