Repeating and reaction vs. referencing and Reflection
Anchor charts support and reinforce:
- Procedures, routines and how-to’s (see Agenda image below)
- Expectations for appropriate behavior
- Math strategies and vocabulary words
- Reading strategies and vocabulary words (pictured below)
- Speaking in complete sentences
- Standards for work performance and quality
Anchor Chart Recommendations:
- Create it together no matter how “ugly” it is- NO Pinterest or printables! The purpose is to document, or memorialize, the learning for later reference.
- Use words AND pictures to highlight essential content from a lesson.
- Place it in a highly visible area where students can reference it when needed.
- Revisit and revise charts as needed, especially for behavioral expectations and work quality.
