Mini DIY Anchor Chart Stand!

Happy rainy Saturday!!!  I just finished a project that I am super excited to share.  People, this will rock your world.  I know when I saw it at Falling Into First that my world was rocked.  I made the mister go to Lowe’s with me and grab the pieces right away!  Are ya ready?!

It’s a mini anchor chart stand that is PERFECT for guided reading, guided math, small group instruction and one to one instruction.  OMG!  I know, right?!  The best part?  It’s CHEAP and simple.  I did it in less than 30 minutes and spent about $9.  Yep.  That’s all.

Here’s what you need:
2 – 1 x 1/2 in. Side Outlet Elbow
2- 1/2 in Adapter (Slip x Thread)
2- 1/2 in Elbow (Slip)
1 – 1/2 inch PVC pipe {Cut into three 10″ pieces}
These can be found in the plumbing section.  They’re in little blue boxes.  If you can’t find them just ask for help.  Lowe’s will cut your PVC pipe for you.  But I cut mine in the garage with a hacksaw in about 2 minutes.  Yeah, I used a saw and I still have 10 fingers!
Here’s how to make your mini anchor chart stand:
Cut your PVC pipe into 3 10″ pieces.
Attach the connector to the elbow.
Slide the PVC into the connector.  Do this for both sides.

Add the elbow connector to the top of the PVC pipes on both sides.
Connect the two legs with the third piece of pipe.  
BAM!  Mini anchor chart stand done!!!  Seriously, that easy!!
Now, I’ve seen and heard all of this craze about Washi tape…I am not on that bandwagon.  Gimme my duct tape!  But my friend Danielle S. brought me some mustache washi tape to the Indiana Blogger Meet Up so I put it to use to finish my anchor chart stand!
I can’t wait to put this to use in my classroom this week.  I have big plans of this little guy.  And he’s going to make an appearance in next week’s teaching video!  Stay tuned!
I also plan to make some of these in a slightly larger size for our individual pocket charts in our classroom!!! 
Thanks to Stephanie and Falling Into First for this BRILLIANT IDEA!
