Language Arts Anchor Charts
Math Anchor Charts


The day before beginning The Whipping Boy, I displayed the following anchor charts in the classroom. This unit covers prefixes, suffixes, and root words. The two prefix charts were used for the first lesson. I removed the star-shaped sticky notes before class began; students placed them to the chart under the prefix that made real words. These two charts will change with each lesson, and a different set of prefixes, suffixes, or root words will be displayed.

The character charts will stay up for the duration of the novel. As students read, we will add character traits to these charts. Once we have read approximately half the book, the characters' main problems will be added. At the end of the novel, the solution to this problem will also be added.
