Planet Points: Mini-Anchor Charts!

Hello again!  
Thanks for stopping by for this month's Planet Point!
I want to share with you an idea about anchor charts.
I LOVE anchor charts!  I think that they are the perfect way to make our thinking visible.  I am a staunch believer in making my anchor charts with the kiddos.
That being said, anchor charts take up a lot of wall space.
Sometimes you need a smaller "reminder" chart, or just a chart for one specific idea.
I have found that making mini-anchor charts works perfectly.
I also found that I LOVE to make them on Super Sticky Post-it notes so that I can move them around and stick them anywhere!
This one about making generalizations is stuck to our CAFE menu of reading strategies.
This chart was made when we were writing observation journals about our classroom tadpoles.  Every time we did an observation, I put this chart where the kiddos were doing their writing.  It really helped!

These are the Post-It notes that I used for my mini-anchor charts:

They are 8"x 6" and are the perfect size!  The ones that I have found come in four different colors:
orange, yellow, green, and pink.

I found mine at Meijer, but you can also find them on Amazon!
(What CAN'T you find on Amazon?)

  1. Clever idea Hillary! I'll definitely use this for those concepts I want to keep at hand, but don't need year round.
    I see these are 'super sticky' Post its. How many times can you move them before they fall off the wall?

    1. Hi! I moved the science one several times during the unit, I never really counted, but it was at least 5 and it was still sticking great to take the picture! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment!


I love comments! Thanks!
