When creating anchor charts it is a good idea to keep the purpose in mind. The point of an anchor chart is to help with instruction. Anchor charts provide a visual reminder of the crucial teaching points. If you never reference an anchor chart in a minilesson, conference, or share session, it is a good indication that you don’t need the chart. Get rid of it!

I love this entry about creating writer's workshop anchor charts. She also talks about reading Click Clack Moo to talk about why we write. I need to do this lesson in the first few weeks of school!
