What to do with all of those Anchor Charts!

Now that we have been using our I pads consistently for a while, we have settled into a routine.  One routine that has become extremely helpful for the classroom is taking pictures of our anchor charts!

Anchor charts had become overwhelming wallpaper before the I pads came.  The students loved them and used them, but they were taking up way too much space!

Now every time we make a great anchor chart for a lesson, it goes into an album in our photos.  This is the anchor chart we made for Capacity.

To create an album, click on the Photos app.  Then click on the word Album in blue
at the bottom.

Next, click on the plus sign at the top and add an album.  We have albums for Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science.

To insert a photo into an album, open the Photo app, click Select at the top right corner.  Then click on a photo.  You can then click Add To at the top to add it to any album you want!

My students use their anchor charts all of the time for reference now.  They also use them to create amazing Educreations videos!  More on this soon!
