These 5 posters are used all year long in 3rd grade during the Module Lessons in EL Literacy instruction (Expeditionary Learning). They're first introduced in 3rd grade lesson 1 (the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL), and then referenced and reused time and again throughout the year.
I created these because I wanted something I could put up in my classroom quickly, something more permanent, and something easier to read than a hand-made anchor chart made on flip-chart paper. These are not charts you need to make with your students. With the large amount of text, and lack of creativity in the 'suggested' anchor charts, I also thought it would be better for if the posters were printed neatly.
You will get pdf files meant to be printed as 18x24inch posters. This is a great size for the classroom, as they're not going to take up too much space, but they'll be big enough to reference from the student workspace. The files you download have the crop marks and bleed for professional printing. I would NOT suggest trying to print larger than 18x24 inches, as the quality of the images will be reduced and you won't have the crisp edges.
You should be able to print these with your school's poster maker, if you're lucky enough to have one!

EL Literacy poster for "Group Work in the ALL Block" which I offer for free on my TPT sales page.
I created these to make the EL Literacy lessons easier for us as teachers. Please remember these are my personal work, and I spent a lot of time on designing them. There is a good discount if you would like your team members to have them, so please look at the multiple license price if you need more than one set. If you see a mistake, please let me know so I can correct it!
