I am a teacher in a school district where less than half the schools have received state accreditation and my school just became fully accredited last year. I believe it is important for students to have the tools they need to be successful on the state standardized tests. To be prepared students need a variety of instructional deliveries and anchor are amazing tools for visual learners.
I teach a diverse population, including gifted and special education students.
My students are from rural areas. We are a very small school with only 200 students from pre-k to 5th grade. 98% of students are eligible for free and reduced meals and 87% come from economically disadvantaged homes.
In fifth grade, students learn about a wide variety of topics, from converting fractions to decimals to the ocean floor and all its parts.
Math is increasingly difficult with fifth grade skills, as it requires more steps in order to solve problems instead as well as the basic operations that students have learned in younger grades.
Anchor charts will allow students to have step-by-step visuals. They will help make learning interactive and give students an
important resource to look back on.Since students are more independent in fifth grade than lower grades, they are able to give input on what ways they learn best and even help create the anchor charts themselves.
