Story Bags

I picked up this bag at Michaels for $1 and these for .59 each(I bought around 15 of them) Our story always begins with Once upon a time and then we draw a piece (without looking)and we start to tell our story. Every person adding to it as we draw new pieces. My children loved it and could have done it for hours, literally!

Anchor Charts for Writing

If you would've asked me my thoughts about using anchor charts in the classroom a few years ago, I would've said something along the lines of them being more appropriate in a primary room--not so much 4th or 5th grade.

Anchor charts are very big in my school and the students here have learned to look for them in their classrooms over the years. My…
