Anchor Charts

I created this anchor chart to help my students remember the 3 things I want them to help their friend revise in their writing.  I pair my students up and they check for a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence, spaces between words and a punctuation mark at the end
Revising With a Friend

I was searching other blogs for anchor charts to use in reading workshop and writing workshop.  I came across one of each on Mrs. Jump's Class.  You can find the post here.  I don't know about anyone else but I am a perfectionist so I know there was no way I was going to make these charts by hand.  I made a set for my class using a Word document. You will need to print these on a legal size paper.

Super Readers

Amazing Writers

Finally, I came across a capitalization chart that I loved.  Again, between the pictures and writing I knew I would drive myself nuts trying to recreated the chart so I went ahead and typed it up.  Here is the problem....I can't recall where I saw it.  I downloaded the picture so I could remember to make it but forgot to write down where I found it.  If you know where I found this idea please let me know so I can give proper credit to the creator.  I found the wonderful creator of this chart---well she found me!  Yeah!  It came from Ms. Simoneaux's blog First Grade Fresh.  Be sure to pop over and see some of her other anchor charts!
Capitalization Anchor Chart


  1. No problem Jill. I just wish I could recall where I got the capitalization idea so I could give proper credit.

  2. You sound like me! I'm always searching for where I saw an idea! The capitalization anchor chart was from my blog:
    I love the printable you created! I am definitely going to snag that and place it in portable workstations or maybe my kids writing folders! Thanks!

  3. Thank Ms. Simoneaux! I just updated the post and added a link back to your blog! I always worry that when I forget where I found something that I will one day receive a not so kind e-mail but you are so understanding!
