Anchors Away Monday: Synthesize!

Today I want to share the synthesize anchor chart that I copied off of  Pinterest. I am not very good at coming up with my own anchor charts, but I sure do enjoying copying the ones that I find on Pinterest :) I am seriously so jealous of all of you teachers that are so creative, and I am very grateful for Pinterest for allowing me to recreate these ideas! I took ideas from a bunch of other anchor charts that I saw to create this one, so if any of these are your ideas let me know and I'll give you credit!

I'll be honest, synthesizing is my least favorite reading strategy. It is a hard concept for students to grasp, so I had to refer back to this poster multiple times. We will continue to work on this strategy this week, so if any of you have suggestions of activities to use for synthesizing, I would love to hear them!

  1. I absolutely LOVE this anchor chart- I love the combination of the puzzle and the light bulb! To me, this is exactly what synthesizing is... putting new pieces in the puzzle (taking in new information) to make the light bulb go off in your mind (create new understanding)! I don't remember ever running across this anchor chart on Pinterest... so I am pinning yours to my board! Thank you so much for linking up! (BTW, I agree- this is a very challenging concept to teach!)
