Creating anchor charts and graphic organizers in the classroom (with students!!!) is a powerful learning tool and a great learning strategy. We love creating anchor charts and graphic organizers with our Read It Up! resources, our TKS BOOTCAMP curriculum and our TKS Research Projects, but the question is how to display them. We all know classrooms aren’t actually designed in the best ways so we have to creative. And since wall space is LIMITED, we go UP for our anchor chart display!
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room….the fire marshall and motion detectors.

I have to WAIT?! I am not a patient waiter at the end of the year. Can't wait. 🙂
Our fire marshal will not allow us to hang anything from the ceiling!! Ahhhh! The charts on a rope looks terrific!!
I clicked on the panoramic photo and BAM…insta happiness. Love this idea. Wish that I could hang from the ceiling. Maybe I can adapt this somehow! Thanks for sharing!

I am so excited to try anchor charts on a rope! I have a cloth accordian wall divider that I can’t hang stuff on and I’m out of room for all the great work we’ve done. Brilliant idea, thank you so much!! 🙂
I love the anchor charts on a rope! My issues is I’m short! And I hate ladders. If I could get someone else to come in and hang them for me, that would be awesome! ????
What is the name of the little clips on the rope from ikea?
Ughhh…I don’t remember off the top of my head. I think Google will have the answer though!
Has administration every said that the anchor charts are too high for your students to reference. I teach Pre-K so that would be my only concern. What is your suggestion?
Never. My students see them without an issue ever. I’ve done them like this for like 9 years now. lol 😉 That said, there are some other options. Use the search function and type in “anchor charts” for more information.
1/4 or 1/2 thick yellow rope?
I think the 1/2 would work best
