I totally get the irritation of white boards being too low! As a 6'0" female I am so tired of bending over to write on my board. This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing. :)

I feel your pain. It is amazing how those little things can make our lives easier. Thanks for chiming in!

I discovered this trick about 6 years ago. The magnets are also fabulous for holding up pocket charts!

Learning Engineer said...

That's a good idea about the pocket charts. Thanks!

To keep the pad from slipping down, put one of the hook magnets at the bottom in the middle. I had the same problem.

Learning Engineer said...

Excellent suggestion Cynthia!

Awesome idea! I laughed out loud at the "turn to your partner, and make a prediction" part lol! Thanks for sharing!

Just suggestion to go one more step on your GREAT idea for storing the anchor charts; how about labeling each hanger with a piece of folded tape at the top so you can easily find the chart when you need it. Could label by subject/common core numbers/units/etc.

Learning Engineer said...

Thanks, that sounds like a good idea : )

I like your idea, I'm not even 6 foot and I don't like writing on those chart stands! When I store my anchor charts, I use skirt hangers from Walmart, Target, etc... I don't have to worry about the clothespins breaking, They are very durable. They have worked great for me the past several years.

Learning Engineer said...

I will give the skirt hangers a try. Thanks Kelly : )

I use 3m hooks to attach chart pads to board and binder chips on sides to prevent pages blowing in ac. Shorts, skirts, and pants hangers work great for storing and hanging charts. Photos of charts in a binder are great for when charts are put away and students need to reference the charts.

I need to start saving pictures of my anchor charts! Thanks for your comment Michelle : )
