We all know that anchor charts are a huge part of a classroom. I believe that they should be separated by content. To add a little bit of color above the bulletin boards, I created these Content Board and Grade Level Banners and added them to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. The banners can be pieced together on ribbon for display. The sets include triangle pieces to assemble the following words: Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, Word Wall Daily Five, CAFE, Art. P.E., Physical Education, Music, Computers, Library, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth. These designs match my Word Wall Headers.

As a part of our lessons on fiction story elements and our author study of Eric Carle, we compared the stories The Mixed-Up Chameleon and The Foolish Tortoise. Using a Double Bubble Map, we started with how the two stories are the same: author, problems, solutions, setting, animals, reptiles, etc. We then talked about how those things are the same, there are differences between them. We color coded the parts to show how although they have elements that are the same, the author used them differently to create two unique stories.

The students have been learning to identify the names of coins and their value. They are also learning to identify how many pennies are equivalent to that coin's value. To help them with this concept, we created a large class Tree Map with examples of the coins, their values, and other ways to make the same value.

Fellow teachers, I created two sets of ten frame posters that you might be interested in. The first set of posters includes the numerical and word form of the numbers 1-30 with corresponding ten frames. The second set also includes how many tens and ones comprise the number. The posters can be reduced to flashcard size by printing multiple cards per page on your printers property settings. The posters can be used as anchor charts, bound into a flip book, or used as flashcards in games such as Around the World. You can also print multiple sets in flashcard size for games such as Concentration. The downloads can be found on my TPT store.
