I seen to collect one or two a year but I'm not sure what to do with them. Any ideas besides vocab., spelling, and word wall? I would love to use some for some type of organization so I don'e use so much space in other places. Any help is good help. Thanks ahead of time.

Lunch Choice

I use them for lunch choice and attendance. All students' names are on the far left and then when they come in for the morning they move it to buying or brought. Maybe that's something you want? :-)

small Target pocket charts

I keep finding more ways to use pocket charts. I have one for calendar, one for my teaching easel for large displays and guided reading teaching, and several small ones.
  • I use the smaller pocket charts-currently in the dollar bins at Target- for my classroom job chart. I used plastic tape (colored electrician's tape) to divide the bottom 7 pockets in half and the left the top pocket long for the title. I then put each job on an address label and had the children's names on address labels that I could move to a new job each week.
  • I taped 2 of the Target charts together side by side and divided each into thirds with tape-creating a six column graph. Children could indicate their place on the graph with the address label name tags. Last year a PT post gave me the idea to print a page of lables for each child-they were great for labeling artwork, writing journals, math folders, etc all year long.
  • Today I bought a bunch more of these dollar charts-for my word study center-children can create words using letter cards, sentences using word cards, etc.

I use my big pocket chart to post my schedule. Out next to the times, I write our classwork per subject on a sentence strip (keeps me from having to keep checking my plan book all day). I have another one that I'm going to try to turn in to a lit station rotation chart, but for some reason, I'm having a hard time figuring out how I want to do it!

Writing Process Chart

I was thinking about using one to list the different stages of the writing process (drafting, conference, revise, publish, etc.) then have students place their name square in the stage they are currently at similiar to how some people use clothespins.

I use a pocket chart for the students to show which stage of the writing process they are working on as well. I cut apart a poster that had the stages and placed one stage on each line. Then I took pictures of my kids and cut them down to a 2"x2" square and that is what they move within the pocket chart. Does that make sense?

In addition to what was already said...
* pockets charts are a great way to display centers
* you can use the smaller (like the 1 dollar target ones) in centers themselves
