Charts, Charts, Charts!

I've been looking at other teachers' blogs for about 9-10 months now and I have been inspired in countless ways.  One way I can count is the inspiration I've received by looking at all of the amazing charts!

This summer I bought these markers:

I must say that I have been happier with the Elmer's Popperz pens than I have been with the Art Skills pens. 

I started a board on Pinterest for 'Anchor Charts'.  Some of the charts I pinned for the content, others the visual, artistic, or aesthetic qualities, and for some both.  I am not naturally artistic so I need to get as much help as possible to make my charts appealing.  You can view my Anchor Charts board HERE

I have begun making charts for my classroom.  Here is what I have so far:

I'll be adding what the students put onto the post-its onto the charts. Each child could take 3-5 post-its to add to any of the four charts.
I thought I had a picture of my 'Estimate the Difference poster...it's a lot like this one!

As I was searching on Pinterest for Anchor Charts I found Nancy's Anchor Chart Notebook, 

which in turn lead me to her amazing blog, Teaching my Friends!
I loved this idea because I'm already running out of room in my class and it's only early October!  Here is my version of the Anchor Chart Notebook:
I hope something here has inspired you too!!!  Happy teaching!
