Easy Mini Anchor Chart Holder

A few months ago I was walking through Staples and I spotted these....
Crayons and Whimsy Easy Anchor Chart Holder
And I thought these "stand-up sign holders" as they are aptly named could be just what I need to hold mini anchor charts and samples.

And that, my friends, is just what they do.

I love them.... mainly because they are so easy- just slide something in and right out. No pins, rings or anything else. And much easier than a real frame where you have to take the back off....etc etc... and ain't nobody got time for that!

Sometimes I have little mini anchor charts or posters inside:

And other times it will have my work sample....

Sometimes at my independent centers they will just have clues to let the little ones know what they are supposed to do.  For example, by having the picture of Gertie Goose {this is an Alphafriend from our Houghton Mifflin Language Arts Program} the kids know that they will be about to sing Gertie's song at that listening center.

And as I am sure you have noticed they come either vertical and horizontal.... so of course, I got two of each!

It does appear that when photographed there is a good amount of glare, but that is never an issue in class.

I got these for $6.00 each and I have to admit I thought that was a bit overpriced {even though that was the sale price} ...... but now I would have paid a lot more since I know how much use they get.

I may even snag a few more before next school year starts!


  1. I love this!! The possibilities are endless!!

  2. Sharing your work sample on the tables is a really great idea - this would really help some of the children in my class to work more independently. I will have to go any find some of these frames. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have been looking for items to post, small anchor charts in my classroom. These are perfect.
