Fifth grade was my home before stepping into the math coach role, and I love getting back into 5th grade classrooms.  Earlier this week, I was in Mrs. Martinez’s room, and I loved that she had anchor charts up for the kids!  I think too often we think of anchor charts as something for primary kiddos.

I really liked the two about test taking.  Kids need to understand that there are certain behaviors that will help them be successful in test-taking situations.

Enjoy!

    Just recently I started using anchor charts with my 6th grade students. My goal is to encourage students to use them as a reference when working during class, and see the charts as informative and not merely decoration.

    I’ve had this discussion at school about anchor charts and upper elementary. I agree that they can be a helpful tool, however I also think that students in grades 4 and 5 should be transitioning to taking notes.
