Why Reading Notebook Anchor Charts?

The charts in this product are meant to be used inside students’ reading or writing notebooks. This is why they are shown two on a page. I don’t know about you, but we have copy budgeting issues at my school and I am always trying to find ways to save paper and copies! Plus, my students use composition notebooks for every subject and we have a special section for Notes and Teaching Charts where we glue these in. 

More importantly, I use a lot of anchor charts in my classroom. With the amount of charts I make- it would be impossible to keep all of them up throughout the year and sometimes students forget they are there. Having them right in their notebooks allows easy accessibility to help during independent Reading. You might also find these useful for parents to use at home.

Since I began using anchor charts inside our Reading and Writing Notebooks, I have noticed my students are able to work better independently. They have the tools they need to support their learning. The charts have also been helpful in planning and presenting my lessons. For example, when we are talking about “theme,” I have examples and ways to find it by using the chart. This helps to bring a large and broad topic down to a concrete idea.

If you have purchased my Reading Notebook Anchor Charts {Reading Literature}, then you are familiar with how these charts work. Throughout the past couple of years, I have worked to better align my resources to the standards. The charts contained in this set are organized by the 3 big Anchor Standards in the Reading Informational Text Strand. The charts are intended to be versatile enough for grades 3-5. If you are looking for something specific to be included in this resource, please email me at I am always looking for ways to enhance the quality of my products. The sister product Reading Notebook Anchor Charts {Reading Literature} is also undergoing some changes to be organized by the anchor standards for Reading Literature with more charts to be added soon.

I hope you and your students find this resource as useful as we do! Happy Teaching!
