Tried It Tuesday-Anchor Chart Storage

I want to share a little something that has helped organize classroom this year!
So excited to link up my idea with one of my favorite people, Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried It Tuesday party!
 
I love modeling my thinking and creating anchor charts with my students to hold our thinking, but we have very limited wall space in our classroom to "hold" these charts. So many charts are able to be referred to all year, so I hate throwing them away or storing them away in a drawer where they'll be forgotten. Well, guess what? I found the PERFECT storage solution...
 

I found this magnetic drapery rod at Walmart this summer and it's been a perfect space saver for my anchor charts! Yes, you read that correctly, it's magnetic so it's portable! No hooks or hanging on walls or pocket chart holders...just sticks to your erase board or chalkboard. I hole punch my anchor charts and feed them onto book rings that are attached to the rod. I can easily flip the charts back and forth to refer back to past learning and thinking.


 I have about 12 anchor charts currently hanging on this rod and there's plenty of room for more! I don't save EVERY anchor chart, just the ones I think they may need a "refresher" lesson on or charts that won't change from lesson to lesson (definitions or examples of reading strategies/skills).
 

 I hope this is a solution to your anchor chart storage problem, if you have one. It's one of the best classroom organizational pieces I've purchased! Great $12 investment! :)
 
Love to hear what you think about this magnetic rod or how you store your anchor charts!

If you missed my post from Saturday (click here), I just listed this fun creation!!

  2. Wow, what a great idea! I never know where to put the anchor charts once we create them!! Even with 12 charts attached, you don't have the problem of the rod sliding down the board? Thanks for organization solution!!
