What charts do you put up?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of putting up a little chart with some grammar tips and such on the wall next to older ds's desk. In particular, ones about the parts of speech, definitions, usage, examples, etc. Given that we just started a new year and have one chapter in the old R&S grammar to finish, he has forgotten a bit.


What charts do you have up as helps for doing work?

If anyone has pics of the wall charts and bulletin boards that would be great. I had two dry erase charts up (weekly one to write in assignments, and notebook lined one) and we just took them down b/c it was a mess. There was an outline of the posters up from rubbing the dry erase off, and when dc went out of the lines/edges? I had to repaint the wall.


I was considering putting up a heavy duty with edges dry erase but not sure what height since I want ds to be able to use it as well? I am thinking of just taping the desk size calendars and write in his subjects for the day, b/c he really likes checking them off (that's why we had the weekly dry erase up).

For a 3.5 year old who wants to "do school..."


  • Books of the Bible
  • Psalm 23 (with a nice photograph of sheep)
  • A-Z Bible Memory Verses
  • Months of the Year
  • Days of the Week
  • Word Families (-ab, cab, dab, gab, tab, slab, etc.)
  • Numbers 1-100
  • Numbers 1-20 (with pictures; on the fridge)

We rotate our charts, so when these go down, others will go up. For example:



USA map

World map (very simple, with continents & oceans only)

The Lord's Prayer

Animal Groups


You get the picture. I found most of these at Becker's Parent/Teacher store, about $1 or $2 per poster. I know the store near us has some great grammar & mechanics/punctuation posters, which would be good to use with an older student. Hope you find what you are looking for! :001_smile:
