Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Author's Purpose: Trying PIE together...mmmmmm - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Anchor charts are a great visual tool in the classroom and they serve as a reminder to students of the strategy we are working on and what it means. To take it a step further, however, it’s a good idea to have students copy the information from the anchor charts into their Reader’s Notebooks. Anchor charts should be minimal with text so it won’t take long or be too hard for students to do so. By writing the information themselves, it reinforces the concept. Once they have it written, they can look back at it anytime and their Reader’s Notebook ends up being collection of important strategies and information.
