teacher tip for making anchor charts

 if you get exhausted from handwriting all of your anchor charts, then this blog post will show you how to use the computer to type parts of them.

 you will need:

  • microsoft word
  • printer
  • colored paper
 first we are going to set up a template in microsoft word.
 open up a document in microsoft.
go to file (at the top) and click on page set up...

go to paper size (above it says US letter)
click on manage custom sizes (bottom of list)

for this anchor chart we selected 5X5 (click okay)
type your text.
here is the template we created (the font will look funny if you don't have elizabeth skinny)

get your paper ready

cut 5X5 squares 
check in with your tech person on how to feed the paper in the printer.

 ta dah!!!

flip over the paper and add illustrations.
 students can help make the pictures. 
 different fonts can give it a different look.
happy printing!
