What are anchor charts?

Anchor charts are a great way to make thinking visible as you record strategies, processes, cues, guidelines and other content during the learning process.


Anchor charts are tools to document students' thinking and learning and serve as a visual

reference of our learning process. They keep what we are currently learning accessible and enable students to make later connections. Anchor charts "anchor" our learning, bring focus to a particular strategy or standard we are working on and support students during independent practice, class discussions or whenever they just need a little reminder.

Record the learning process.
