The Two Writing Teachers have a great Blog. This week they are sharing their thoughts on creating classroom environments. Saturday’s topic was charts and there were some GREAT ones that I want to remember:
Here is their Getting Started with workshop chart:
I 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:
I love how much ownership this provides students in problem solving for themselves!
Here is their Talking chart:

Here is my favorite…their Stamina chart:
I love the word challenge used on this chart, how it explains why stamina is important, and what part of stamina they are working on.
Here is another interesting chart I found on the Internet:
