Anchors Away Monday (Plot)

Happy Labor Day! Hope you all are enjoying your day off (or getting ready to start school if you haven't went back already)! I'm linking up with Deb from Crafting Connections for her Weekly Anchors Away Monday!

 We started school two weeks ago and it has been crazy busy since! The saying, "There is no tired like teacher-tired at the beginning of  the year!" couldn't ring more true!  I've been exhausted for the past couple of week and we still don't have everything running smoothly at school yet. Schedules are a nightmare (hopefully, this will be completed soon) and getting into the swing of things is grueling! BUT, it will get better! Hopefully... :)

This week my reading class will be focusing on plot! This is one of the anchor charts I plan to use as well as a video clip to help students understand the important aspects of plot!

I also plan to use this video clip from

This is a GREAT site for quick teaching clips! 


I plan to combine these two activities with their interactive notebook in order to teach plot! We will be revisiting the story Because of Winn Dixie this week in order to dig deeper into the text! 

Have a Fantastic Labor Day!!!


  1. I love your anchor chart and how you mention where the conflict is introduced!! I love the colors you chose, too! Thanks for linking up!

    1. Thanks Deb, I really appreciate it. I, Iris Hinojosa, created this anchor chart for my 4th grade students in Houston, Texas. It's been posted on my Pinterest account ever since then. Please feel free to follow me for more ideas.
