“Anchor charts are a wonderful tool to document students' thinking and learning and serve as a visual reference of our learning process. They keep what we are currently learning accessible and enable students to make later connections. Anchor charts 'anchor' our learning, bring focus to a particular strategy or standard we are working on and support students during independent practice, class discussions or whenever they just need a little reminder.” -Around the Kampfire
