    4 & 5. Each Writing and Reading Anchor Chart includes:

    Individual student page and larger pieces to create a poster-sized anchor chart that you can fill in with students (helping them own that learning by creating it together!). Think of all the TIME you’ll save not having to make your own! If you prefer to create your anchor chart with your class, just glue down the title/decorative/heading pieces ahead of time and complete the writing portions with your students. I’ve also included black and white student size versions (which are perfect for students to color!). These anchor charts are great to use as a kickstarter to introducing a new concept. These are also perfect for use in classrooms with ELLs, as they provide the necessary visuals & concise teaching points to reinforce content and academic vocabulary for multiple grade levels, and the individual page can be used as a reference at their desk or in a pull-out situation.
