Anchor charts in Pre-K

We had a request for anchor charts from PreK. So here you go! I took these photos at Gabriela Mistral Early Childhood Center in HISD in Houston. What a fabulous school for 4 year olds! My friend, Mechiel Rozas, is the principal here and invited me to come to their Math Data Day before Spring Break. These teachers and their students are blessed to be learning together in this environment.

Upper grade teachers in Goose Creek ISD worked together to create sample anchor charts to accompany Figure 19 Comprehension Skills (related to TX state standards). Many of them used the theme of “making connections.” I told how I liked to tell my students that when they read it’s like a TV. When you turn the TV on, there’s sound and a picture.

These two great pictures of anchor charts come from Deedee Wills, a kindergarten teacher at Owensville Elementary School in Missouri. Deedee created a morning procedure chart and since that worked really well, she also created a chart for use at the end of the school day. Great ideas!

While in Maine last week, I met with about 400 teachers at the Elks Lodge in Waterville. As part of our work together, we thought about anchor charts we’d make with children this year. Before creating an anchor chart with children, it’s a good idea to think about what it might look like. So we made some samples together. What an engaging process this was! The pictures tell it all.
