Making and using anchor charts for math before, during, and after instruction to make learning visual and visible is essential in the classroom.
Even in this digital environment, smart teachers know that using large chart paper to create math anchor charts for visual learning is important.
Extending access to students by hanging them up in the classroom for daily reference is so helpful for students.
I can remember students in my classroom gazing up at the exact spot an anchor chart had hung before state testing in order to visualize whatever concept they needed to remember! That’s how important visual displays of learning can be!
Here are a few tips when making anchor charts for math learning:
1. Use large chart paper – you want students to be able to see it from different
areas of the classroom.
2. Do it with your students. If they help you, they will own the learning.
3. Use more than one color marker to differentiate important information.
4. Keep the information succinct and organized so it is easy to find the needed information, but doesn’t overwhelm students.
5. Be creative if you want to! Students love it when their teachers draw pictures.
Keep your anchor charts up for as long as possible. Students keep learning throughout the school year.
If however, don’t have the space or the fire marshall is strict about paper on walls, you have to find other ways for students to access this learning.
One way I found to keep this new learning in front of students is by having individual math anchor charts for students to keep in their notebooks. It’s so easy to include these anchor charts in math centers for quick reference.
Think of how many times students have had questions and stopped working while they wait for you to help.
Having anchor charts up in the classroom or in their notebooks can help keep students learning while they work independently or in small groups.
They have tons of relevant information on all the major math concepts taught in 3rd grade.
It makes my teacher heart so happy when my students look for the information they need to solve a math problem! That’s why I love this set! So easy to print or share in Google™ Classroom!
These anchor charts for math learning are an essential resource for your classroom!
The 13 primary concepts taught in 3rd grade are available in both printable and digital formats; place value, rounding, 2 & 3 digit addition and subtraction, multiplication, division, data analysis, measurement, time, plane shapes, area & perimeter, fractions of a whole, and comparing fractions.
