Poster Storage

If you're here because of the hamburger paragraph poster, can I suggest you click here to give you more information on how I teach and use it? :)

I'm linking up with Joy in the Journey and Compassionate Teacher for their Tricks on a Thursday  Linky.




Today's Topic: Poster Storage and Organization

Well, when I first walked into my classroom over the summer (and spent any significant time in there) I actually threw away most of the posters! Problem solved-end of post ;)

No, I really did have a plan :)

1. I have a SMART Board, so I'm able to pull up just about anything I want on it for the kids.

2. I think that the kids would get the most use out of stuff that we create together-so I equate posters to anchor charts.

So my 'posters' are separated into two categories- Reading and Writing.

Reading has a nice bulletin board spot, with cute glitter clips to hold them up. They are layered on top of one another, so kids can go back and reference them when needed.

My writing charts don't have such a fun home (although that will change for next year :). Right now, their home is on the whiteboard, help up with magnet men.

If I have a really good anchor chart that I want to keep for another year, I roll it up into a tube and paperclip each end.

Right now, they get shoved on a shelf in the closet, with no sense of organization. But I hope to change that over the summer :)


Guess what was waiting for me when I got the mail yesterday?

Some books! I'm participating in Primary Inspired book study this summer, and the other three are holes that I found after I bought Jivey's Mentor Sentences (2 were used-fulfilled by Amazon, 1 new...and another one was $.01 (+$3.99 shipping) that I'm still waiting on). I love new books! :)


Have you entered?!!

  1. I love the idea of keeping the charts up all year for the students to reference. I may have to try that next year.
