Whether you’re teaching students about numerical values, building responsibility with class jobs, or anything in between, pocket charts can be a teacher’s best friend! Thanks to the wide variety of pocket charts, there are a multitude of ways you can enhance your teaching space.
One way to get started: Set up stations where the pocket chart serves as a central learning activity. For instance, math centers can feature a number sequencing pocket chart, science centers can include a sorting activity involving the solar system, and literacy centers can encourage students to construct their own poem using a stack of pre-selected word cards.
Calendar and scheduling pocket charts are also useful for classroom organization throughout the year. Try the Standard (Black) Pocket Chart, a versatile pocket chart great for both whole class and small group activities. Display significant dates and students’ birthdays using bright and colorful date cards, or ensure students know what to expect each day with a large visual schedule.
