Hanging Anchor Charts {A Bright Idea!}

Hey yall! Happy Saturday!
 
I'm actually in Fayetteville for a regional Jamberry conference, but I couldn't miss the opportunity to bring you another bright idea!

 
 
This month, I wanted to share how we are hanging our anchor charts this year.
If you're like me, anchor charts are happening....multiple times a week!
 
Where in the world are you supposed to put all those lovely charts???
 
Last year, I hung them up with hangers on a rolling cart.
It worked okay, but they were really in the way...like, big time.
 
So this year I wanted to designate a specific spot to hang our charts, so I decided to dedicate a whole bulletin board just for our charts. But they needed to be able to be removed or added to, so I decided to use clothespins to hang them up.
 
However, gluing clothespins to a bulletin board?
Not an option for me.
 
Instead, I did this!
 
 
I hot-glued some pushpins to the back of my clothespins.

 
 
 
Then I just pushed them into the bulletin board and hung up my charts!
 
Done!

 

 
Please note:
1) I went back and added the "or" after I took this picture
2) The chart on the right was NOT drawn by me! I asked the para to make a chart about irregular plural verbs and this is what I got...the kiddos didn't seem to mind, though :)
 
Check out the link-up below for even MORE bright ideas!

  1. Love this idea! I do something similar but I stick velcro onto the back of my pegs as we have carpeted boards (that sounds kooky) instead of cork boards, the rough velcro sticks really well to the carpet.
