Reading Anchor Charts take a long time to make and they are best done with your students. Sometimes it's nice though to have them for reference later. I love projecting these for review lessons, putting them in interactive notebooks, and for helping parents at home.

In my classroom, I have projected as I am modeling a skill. I have also provided my students with printed copies that they can place in their interactive notebooks for selective highlighting, text marking, and for reference later.

With small group instruction, I have clipped the chart to my tabletop "feature board" for reference too. Modeling using think aloud, cutting and pasting in interactive notebooks, sending home to help parents, and/or projecting them for class discussion are all possibilities. If interactive notebooks are not your thing, students can 3 hole punch a hard copy for reference as they're reading or for help when they need a skill clarified. Skills included in this packet are listed below.
