Product Description
Want your students to access their prior knowledge? Need them to connect to your lesson? This resource is dedicated to teaching our students connections through the use of digital anchor charts. Digital Anchor Charts have an organized appearance for easy learning. (They finally look like the ones on Pinterest!)

Digital Anchor Charts make use of the technology that teachers have on hand to create editable anchor documents. The digital documents are co-created with students using the teacher as the typist or scribe. This gives students ownership over their learning.

Digital Anchor Charts “anchor” new learning to the classes’ own experiences. Each group of students has a unique set of known experiences which leads to a new document created and saved for each new group of students.

Small copies of Digital Anchor Charts can be printed and given to students to keep in a notebook or laminated and placed on a metal ring. Students are able to use the information from the Digital Anchor Chart by referencing their notebook or ring of laminated “mini” documents.

Digital Anchor Charts are easy to complete with a digitally saved framework anchor document. No starting completely over!
