When I introduce anything new it is most often with an anchor chart of some kind.
My anchor charts are not Pinterest worthy or cutesy-
even if I plan them out ahead of time they always end up crooked, cock-eyed and well kinda crappy!
I think it is so important to create them with my kids though.
That is why they are called anchor charts, because they are supposed to anchor their learning
and be a constant resource within the classroom as students need them.
With that being said, I also like to have those adorable go to resources too.
When it comes to the cutesy pie posters that I buy from TpT sellers I have one rule;
I only put them up as I introduce the concept rather than just as decoration. It's much more meaningful to students this way.
I have been creating some posters of my own and am loving this new idea.
I hung a ribbon and used clothespins to attach the posters.
This is in my entry way at home, but I am going to hang some ribbons around the classroom
to put up posters as our learning grows. I am just thinking of the possibilities and spaces that are normally wasted! There's not hot glue needed here just some ribbon, clothespins and a few tacks!
These are my newest Alice in Wonderland themed Story Elements Posters and Bunting Banners.
I'M IN LOVE WITH THEM!
And tomorrow I have quite a freebie to share with you! The best part about my indecisivness is that you get to benefit from it. I can never decide what size I like best or which direction something should face so I always try 3 or 4 different ways and include them all in the product. The banner above has two different sized buntings and I also did a chalkboard edition.
And here is your sneak peak that you must come back for tomorrow!
Hint Hint my indecisivness came into play again.
