More Earthy Anchor Charts and Instagram

We are up to our shoulders in Earth Day goodness in my classroom!  I'm lovin' it, and better yet, my firsties are lovin' it! :)  I'm also on a fancy anchor chart "kick" these days, so tie the two together, and you get Earthy anchors!

What is Waste?
I figured if I had recycling bin chart, I should have a trash can chart, too!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
This is the original anchor.  I laminated it, so now I can write & erase.
Here it is after my kiddos and I talked about it:
I already erased the Sharpie once {I didn't like my handwriting, lol!} using hand sanitizer on a paper towel.  It works!  So does nail polish remover.  You can also erase Sharpie from laminated surfaces with erasers, but sometimes it takes too much elbow grease to get it all, and I don't have that much elbow grease.

Anywho...!

Before I go make myself a sammy {sandwich?} for dinner, I wanted to mention that I now have an Instagram for my blog!  I'm a complete newbie, but Ms. Griffo made it look so fun, I had to join!  So far I have a whopping three pics posted, but if you want, you can find me @acupcakefortheteacher and follow me on this new adventure!

You need to get some Goof-Off to remove sharpie. It is super easy and can be found at Wal-Mart or Home Depot.

What? You can erase Sharpie? My world is upside down. Also, that reduce/reuse/recycle anchor chart is beautiful.

adorable anchor chart! I'm glad I'm not the only one who is a little OCD on their handwriting! Writing over lamination saves so much time! So much better than re-doing the whole chart (guilty on this for numerous counts).

If it is on plastic or laminated stuff you can use a dry erase marker- just write over it & it will wipe right off! Life changing discovery!!!

Another way to get off Sharpie from laminated items....take a Dry Erase marker and color on top of the Sharpie, then wipe it off! Seriously, super quick and doesn't take any elbow grease!

Hey! Did you know that you can also use Static Guard to remove permanent marker?! It's amazing! i pretty much disappears as soon as you spray it on!
One of my favorite teacher tricks! :)

I made your anchor chart today with reduce, reuse, recycle and am making the trash can tomorrow! We are doing Earth Day all week! Thanks for the great idea! Love them!

P.s. I use your fonts that I purchased for everything I do! They are amazing!
