Product Description
Hate making anchor charts over and over? This resource solves that problem and gives you Pinterest worthy character anchor charts you can use again and again! This resource is dedicated to teaching our students to make connections through the use of interactive and editable anchor charts. These Interactive and Editable Anchor Charts have an organized appearance for easy learning. (They finally look like the ones on Pinterest!) Teach your students how to connect to what they read!

**This resource is to be used with Adobe PDF interactively with students.**You don't have to have Google Classroom to be interactive!

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

Interactive 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 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 anchor chart by referencing their notebook or ring of laminated “mini” documents.

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