Topic Charts

I am alive and well...like most teachers you dive into the school year and are lucky to come up for breath before Thanksgiving! We have done some fun things, and every time we do something I think..."I would love to blog about this!" Then before I know it...another week has past.

One of these days I'll catch up...no promises though!

I did want to share my old and new topic charts that we are using in the room. It's just a general chart that shows an overall "snapshot" of our topic we are discussing/learning. I don't really consider them anchor charts, to me those are more specific. But they are a quick reference for the students.

Sorry for the short post, but enjoy the pictures (my good camera is on the fritz so these are taken with my phone).

Thank you for posting your charts! I especially love the one about theme (that's so hard for my kids!) as well as the one with the multiplication words.

I loved your charts, thanks for posting. I have a question for you. I was trying to read the cards you attached to your theme chart but couldn't read them. Where might I find those?

I think you can find the theme cards here: http://www.lessonswithlaughter.com/2013/04/teaching-theme.html

Theme can NOT be expressed in one word. Theme is what the AUTHOR wants us to learn. If you take the topic (the one word you came up with for theme) and answer the question "What does the author want us to learn about ______?" then you have a theme.
