Anchor Charts


Enjoy these activities to help teach the skill characters to your students.

The three flipchart pages below were created by a third grade teacher in the school where I am currently working. They were so cute that I wanted to share. Enjoy!

Character Anchor Chart

The anchor charts pictured here use different types of engagement. In the topic examples, students name character traits or similarities and differences while the teacher writes them on the anchor charts.

The anchor chart to the left contains two T-charts for the students to compare the point of view in the two stories. With this example, the teacher modeled what she expected the students to do using The Three Little Pigs story. Students then wrote details about The True Story of the Three Little Pigs based on these example. Using this modeling technique really helps younger students know what is expected.
