Anchor Chart only - Teaching Strategies Gold Anchor Charts BUNDLE
Do you use Creative Curriculum’s Teaching Strategies Gold in your classroom? After using it for the past 6 years, I have found each year, as I approached a new curriculum, I was scrambling to come up with the materials I would need for each unit. With this set, you won’t have to! Utilizing this set in your classroom, you will have all of the materials necessary to create an Anchor Chart reflecting the “Roads” unit. This downloadable set includes the TSG Anchor Chart topics of:
- What do we know about roads? What do we want to find out?
- What are some characteristics of roads?
- How do roads help people in their everyday lives?
- How are roads made? Who builds and repairs roads?
- How can we make a road?
- How can we stay safe on the road?
Each topic features child-friendly picture cards to correspond with each topic, prompting active teacher-student discussion and interaction. Exploring each topic, students can share what they know about Roads in a way that makes sense to them, with topic questions and visual aides that are targeted towards young visual learners. Additionally in this set are options to extend their learning, including a pattern activity, as well as Sorting and Labeling activities that explore vehicles and their modes of transportation (land, water, or air) as well as how many wheels the land vehicle have (2 or 4).
This unit features both clip art, as well as real photographs of different roads from around the world, for children to observe, make comments, and draw conclusions from. Also included is The Question of the Day along with supportive images, as well as activities to extend student learning, such as designing their own road signs, vehicles, and roadside attraction!
To best use this set, print, laminate, and cut. I prefer to add a small magnet piece to the back of each item, so that I can use it with my students on our white board. The pictures used in this set are surrounded by a black square, and are the perfect size for young children to utilize themselves, with guidance. While this set is designed around the TSG curriculum, the opportunities for use are endless!
This resource includes three pages of clickable book title suggestions, as well as a page with helpful Roads-related links. We hope that you and your students enjoy exploring this unit - we would love to hear your feedback in our store!
