Anchors Away Monday: Perspective

Thanks for stopping by for


Last week I told you which concept I dreaded teaching each year.  This week, however, I am switching to one of my favorite concepts... teaching perspective!  I think this is fun because there are so many fun books to read when you introduce this topic to your students.

If I had to choose just one to read aloud to my class, I would probably choose The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies.  It is actually a series of books (The Lemonade Crime, The Bell Bandit, The Magic Trap, and The Candy Smash are the other books in this series) and I love to get students hooked on a new series!  Whenever I have read The Lemonade War to or with students, there have always been always several students who are eager to read the other books in the series!

In terms of my anchor chart, this is the one that starts our discussion of perspective.  It looks like this at the beginning of class:
The sunglasses are a FREEBIE by Ashley Hughes.
Students really seem to enjoy brainstorming the differing perspectives of Jake and Mom concerning the soccer cleats!

I also created the following craftivity to accompany this concept.

I'd love to see an anchor chart that is hanging up in your classroom!  Please link up!

  1. This is a cute idea and also a great springboard to persuasive writing! Add in some cold, hard facts and then it could be argumentation! Very cool! :)
