I don't know about you, but I've never had a chart paper rack/easel in my classroom. I've always wanted one, but they're just so expensive! Sometimes I tack my chart paper up to my bulletin board and write on it there, but then I have to take out the tacks and move the papers quite frequently. Same deal when I use magnets to stick it to my whiteboard. The solution for this?
Cheap Pants Hangers!!!!
I got these from IKEA.
I had several of these around the room and could hang them anywhere. I moved them into centers for my students to use for reference as well.
Our instructors for the staff development used these to hold her anchor papers. Students could go back and flip through the old charts on their own! Easy Peasy!
Ok, now go raid your closet and take some of your pants hangers to your classroom.
(That totally reminds me of this funny picture I saw on Pinterest.)
