Mini Anchor Chart Stand Tips

My husband cut these for me but gave me a list of tips to pass along to you so you can be successful with your mini anchor chart stand. First, all you need for the pipes is one 5-foot half inch pipe. Next, the pieces needed for the stand can be cut at most Menard’s, Home Depot’s, Lowe’s, etc. However, if the pieces are being cut at home a hand saw or power saw can be used. The ends will look at bit rough but will be covered up by the elbows once connected. Last, make sure to wear the proper ear and eye protection.

How to Assemble

Disclaimer: I wrapped my PVC pipes with colored duck tape prior to assembling the mini anchor chart stand.

Math Vocabulary Cards

I choose to use the mini anchor chart stand to hold my math vocabulary cards. Typically, there is a vocabulary word to teach prior to any mini lesson that is taught at the small group table. I love it for this purpose because the students will often reference the word and meaning throughout the lesson and they know just where to look to find it.

    I love the uses for the mini stand. Having the current volcabulary at my desk instead of on a wall will make a huge difference in learning. Thanks Angie and everyone.
