These 150+ reading posters and interactive reading anchor charts are a must have for introducing and reinforcing tons of important reading vocabulary and concepts!

Printing flexibility allows for either a poster, an interactive anchor chart, or mini (half page) posters/anchor charts for students' reading notebooks!

Now you can introduce a lesson with a poster or anchor chart, while students are able to interact with them at the same time in their own reading notebooks! Adding them to their own notebooks is the perfect way for students to have easy access to ALL lessons taught, so you don't have to worry about keeping every poster on display throughout the year.

All posters include student-friendly definitions, helpful visuals and clear fonts (no cursive or fancy fonts) to support all students.
