Math Anchor Charts from the Year

Hey everyone! I hope you are enjoying your summer!

I have been busy moving classrooms and schools, because yet again I have a new assignment next year. This one I'm pretty excited about. Our district is creating an academy for the highly gifted. I interviewed and was selected as one of the teachers. I will be teaching a class of 1st and 2nd grade highly gifted students next year. I think I'll stay in this position for a while. :)

Anyway, I was going through pictures from this past school year, and I thought I should share some of my anchor charts that I didn't get to post yet.

This one was about what my students determined all triangles have.

This one was about what my students determined all quadrilaterals have.

This helped them when we were learning about fractions.

Not my best anchor chart, but this was inspired by some I'd found on Pinterest. It helped them with place value.

Although not exactly your traditional anchor chart, I thought I should include this. I had my students make vocabulary word pictures to help with geometry words. Most were hung on the ceiling. The extras were on our display board.

Hope this spurs some ideas!

... and just because, check out this gorgeous lighthouse I saw on my vacation in Maine!


I wish it wasn't so far away from Texas!

I love visiting Maine, though when we were younger, we didn't like the drive from Ohio to get there.

I love your fraction chart! I pinned it to use with my son!

I really like how your anchor charts are in shape of the 2D shape your talking about. That is a great idea.

Just found your site and I love it! My school has also moving into a center for gifted/academically talented students. We will begin this year with one class at each grade level. I was selected to be the 3rd grade teacher and I am super excited. We are using the Cambridge Primary program. What program/curriculum will you be using?
