Anchor Chart Eye Candy!

This post is all about anchor charts!  After looking through the 1500+ photos on my iPhone, I realized that I hadn't shared a bunch of anchors with you… so I thought, why not put them all together in one post?!

I am including the anchors that I made this year and last {the ones I have pics of, at least}.  You may have seen some of them in previous blog posts.  And you may have seen versions of them all on Pinterest or blog hopping, since the majority were pinspired :)  Either way, enjoy a little anchor chart *eye candy* and feel free to borrow ideas!!

Let's start!  We're currently working on subtraction to 40, so this chart is perfect:


I created this one last year to review facts to 10, which always comes in handy:


A couple weeks ago we learned all about plants:



We're always trying to spice up our writing with adjectives:


We used the following charts when learning about nouns and verbs:




Last year I whipped up these charts for Earth Day:




I also made this one during our weather unit last year:


These charts were useful during our Martin Luther King, Jr. study:



We warmed up with these polar charts as we studied eskimos, penguins, and polar bears:




These five senses, fire safety and Columbus charts were super helpful:






And last but not least on this anchor chart review… a little apple fun:


Wowzers!  That's a lot of anchors!  I hope you are inspired by one or many! :)

Teri, these anchor charts are beautiful! I really think the rainbow addition one is brilliant. It's hard to explain the concept in words, and this really is a lovely way to put it in a concrete manner.

These are amazing anchor charts! I wish I was half the artist you are! It looks like a lot of work went into these charts! I was wondering do you save these charts and use them again or do you re make them each year?

This post is excellent! So many great ideas in one spot ;) I created the Rainbow to 10 chart for my firsties this last year and it helped them EVERYDAY!! I am also wondering what markers you use. I found that MR. Scentsy markers were more vivid than others I had. The yummy smells were a plus :)

Beautiful anchor charts!!!! How do you create them? I've seen some of the graphics before on other blogs and am wondering how do you transfer/ draw them onto your charts?
