By Tami Kamin Meyer Posted on Tuesday, November 6, In the fall ofI was thrilled to be hired for a freelance writing opportunity that suited me perfectly.
Every time I went searching for an old anchor chart to reference, I would take one look in my cabinet, shut it, and say something like, "Okay, you remember that anchor chart drama writing anchor made 6 months ago? I have seen brilliant ideas on Pinterest about anchor charts, including putting pictures of them in a binder or taping a hanger to the back so that you can hang them up.
Except, I don't have anywhere to store them that would work to hang them, and I wanted to be able to leave them up for several days at a time when we review.
Also, I admit that I couldn't quite bear to just throw away some of my more aesthetically pleasing charts. I have a small space between my file cabinet and a bookshelf where I could fit something to store them, and here is what I came up with.
I went to Target hoping I could find an adorable bin that would be tall enough to keep all of the charts in check but also large enough to store them all. I didn't find anything. So, I resorted to an 8-gallon black trash can. It was actually the perfect size. As gorgeous as a black trash can is not, I had to do something about it.
After all, I couldn't chance letting the custodian throw away all of my anchor charts after I spent so much time making them. I also printed out a title and put it on with double sided tape. It definitely doesn't look like a trash can anymore.
I neatly rolled up each of the individual charts and put a single rubber band around each one. I also wanted a way to be able to easily find which chart I was looking for. It won't interfere at all with the chart itself, but finding the chart I'm looking for is a breeze! I labeled all of my math anchor charts with a yellow sticker, and all of my reading and language arts anchor charts with a pink sticker.
Nothing fancy, but it accomplished my goal. I organized my anchor charts, I can easily find the one I am looking for, and it looks pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself and my husband also says so, and that must mean something. This was a breeze to put together, and it will be so easy to keep up with.
Just a rubber band and a label, and I can plop each anchor chart in, ready to access when I need it again! Make sure you stop by Molly at Classroom Confections to see a neat way to use calculators to teach expanded form.
