I set my HP printer to poster size (2x2) and out popped a beautiful anchor chart for my students.
How to print posters using an HP Printer.
I have an HP and here’s how I print posters.
Click Print…then click properties. If you have more than one printer…make sure your HP printer is selected.
After you click properties, click on the advanced tab. This is what my screen looks like.
After you click on the Advanced tab look for Poster Printing. It’s set to off.
Then click the pull down menu and select paper size. I usually select 2x2…but there are bigger sizes. Then click OK. After that your poster should print. I’m not sure if other brands have this feature???? Hope this addendum helps.
I also created sound cards to go along with the phonics skill of the week.

Last week we completed Cows in the Barn for eight. But first each student created their own layout for eight cows.
Corn and Tomatoes for Seven
Here are a few pics of our class display for Corn and Tomatoes.
I’ve added math analogies to my daily number talks. Once the students understood they had so much fun figuring them out. I don’t do anything fancy, I usually write a few analogies on my dry erase chart…I get the biggest kick out of listening in as the students try to figure out the answer before math morning meeting. Here are some examples.
Here’s one before Math Morning Meeting
Here’s one after Math Morning Meeting
Here’s the book I use to get a few ideas from.
Sorry for the long post, but I had some catching up to do. Enjoy your Sunday!!
