I've made it to 1,000 hits! I'm so glad people are out there looking at the things I've made and hopefully using them in their classrooms, too! I haven't been able to use them in my classroom yet - our printers have been down all this week and my ink is out at home! I've had Smartboard training from 4:45 - 7:45 yeseterday and today so going to Target to get more ink is not at the top of my list!
I'm super excited to get a Smartboard in my classroom - my kids are going to be SO pumped about it, and of course it will be WONDERful for small group lessons (yes, whole group, too!) and stations! I just hope it gets installed soon - there's a piece of paper saying "install here" hanging up on my wall.....the suspense is killing me!
Ok, just thought I'd share some of the anchor charts I have in my classroom. I use anchor charts for EVERYthing. And my kids can tell you EXACTLY what Expository text is because of it (high five!) We all make it together when I first introduced the topic - on the word families I have them help me write the words, underline the ending part. I have more, just only those two up right now because my walls would be plastered with them if I put every one we did up!
Here are a few pictures:
