Inside my brain

When I have time, I have been doodle journaling to relieve stress and focus my thoughts. I think it also helps me to see what I should be thankful about. So here are some pages so you can see inside my brain!

New Anchor Charts and All About Graphic Organizers

Image result for anchor
Anchors A-weigh!!

Here are some neat anchor charts I found.

Chart beginning sounds! I would do this with my Prek/K kids.

I love that this teaches kids different strategies for math!

From Dr. Clement's Kindergarten's post on Facebook. 
This is good for your early finishers and to also get your students to check their work.

I love this idea to encourage daily interaction!

From Teach Create Initiate, this is good during center time.

A kid-friendly rubric with examples.

Great literacy chart on teaching the differences in letters, words and sentences.

I like that this story map can be re-used. It is a great way to connect to text!

So about graphic organizers... My favorite thing is to take a graphic organizer and put it on chart paper for the students and I to fill out. Then we hang it for future reference on the wall. I like the Post-It giant chart paper the best, but that is pricey, so you can even cut up butcher paper or poster board can work. My students always enjoy using the “smelly markers” (Mr. Sketch brand) for writing on the charts. If you laminate the charts, you can re-use them.
