Anchors Away Linky Party: Language Arts Anchor Charts

Thanks to Frogs & Cupcakes for hosting a great linky party!  I love me some anchor charts. :)  I had been planning on sharing these anchor charts anyways, so I was excited to see this linky party!  Here's a reading anchor chart/graphic organizer we used for making inferences...
The rest of these are for Writing Workshop.  Because I always find myself lacking enough wall space to display my charts, this year I devoted a bulletin board just to writing workshop, and have thumbtacked the charts one on top of another onto it.  Then, I taught the kids to go to the board and page through them when they need to reference one.  They are really good about it, too!  Here are a few of our recent ones, most of which were made during a unit on narrative writing... 

Sorry for the messy writing. :)  I still haven't mastered the art of leaning sideways and writing on my chart from my teacher chair!  One of the many reasons I don't teach first grade... ;)


  1. Oh, I love your 'rest in peace' said chart. I may borrow the idea (I'll credit you, fear not!).


  2. Haha! Your "RIP Said" chart is great. I'll have to borrow that one!! :)

  3. The art of writing sideways on a chart is definitely something we should have practiced more in college (haha). Great charts!! Thanks for linking up!!!


  4. Love your tombstone activity - used it last week near Halloween :) I left you an award over on my blog!

  5. Love your charts!! Sometimes I have to redo my charts b/c my writing slants... and I DID teach 1st grade - LOL!
