Here is their Getting Started with workshop chart:

workshop-i-can-chartI love how this chart shows what the students AND teacher will be doing during this time.  I also love the WHY the work is important inclusion.  Too often my charts just focus on the students.

Here is their Staying Focused chart:

focused-chartI love how much ownership this provides students in problem solving for themselves!

Here is their Talking chart:
