Anchor charts help to encourage learning in the classroom. They help the students to be independent in their learning. However once they leave the classroom setting those anchor charts are no longer valuable. The students are unable to access them to help guide their learning at home. So many classrooms are without textbooks and once they are home homework becomes a struggle. In my classroom the students have what we call "cheat sheets". These sheets are available to the students helping to walk them through the skills step by step.
