Essential Questions Anchor Charts and Lesson Badges for September and October
These 11 x 8.5 posters correspond with my K-5 Curriculum Maps.
Grade K-5 Curriculum Map BUNDLE
They are a FANTASTIC visual reminder for students (and you!), and an effective way to reinforce lesson connections.
The top of each poster clearly states the grade and the monthly ESSENTIAL QUESTION driving the learning. With each essential question comes a lesson badge representative of the lessons taught that month. This is a fun and engaging way to help students make those vital connections between their monthly lessons, and reinforce learning. (EDITABLE!!) The posters serve as anchor charts, and can be used as review tools and lesson summations. The posters are color-coded according to grade. (Grade K is RED – key essential words in the essential question are RED and badges are RED. Grade 1 is ORANGE – key essential words in the essential question are ORANGE and badges are ORANGE, etc.)
You can use the posters TWO ways (I do both!):
1. Print, laminate, and hang your COMPLETED monthly K-5 essential questions and corresponding lesson badges by the library entry/exit doors and refer to them when you summarize the day’s lesson with the classroom teachers at pick up time (no cutting necessary).
2. Find a conducive space in your learning area. Print, laminate and tape or velcro each of the K-5 posters that contain ONLY the essential question. These will serve as your anchor charts. Cut out each of the lesson badges. Upon the completion of each lesson, tape or velcro the lesson badge to the bottom of the anchor chart.
Editable badges are included!! If you would like to use the same font, you can download KG Be Still and Know for free at this link - https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/KG-Be-Still-Know-Personal-Use-348443
