I even have a whole pinboard dedicated to ’em!
Now, I have the kiddos come up with the main idea and the supporting details.
Interactive anchor charts are super easy to make as well! You don’t have to be super artsy or take lots of time to make them! I whipped up this simile one after a poetry lesson when I realized my kiddos just didn’t quite understand this concept.
For the next few weeks we are zeroing in on comparing and contrasting similar texts. I whipped up this interactive anchor chart to help students visualize.
Then after reading a fictional story about baseball and a newspaper article about baseball we compared and contrast the two articles (can someone say Common Core?)
Then we went through and discussed each detail. The kiddos were all into it because ALL of their answers were discussed and I could see right away who understood how to find details that are similar and different when comparing two similar texts. I was then able to pull those students for mini-reteaches during small group time.
So, I hope you stock up on some post it notes! These charts are great for exit slips, close reads, small group, and whole group discussion. Amazon has a great deal on bright colored ones! (My fave!)
