Write On Plastic Pocket Charts Check out this cool idea a reader submitted. It’s simple, but genius! If you use a pocket chart to hold vocabulary words, you can diagram them right on the pocket! Use an overhead marker or a whiteboard marker to diagram words onto the clear front pocket of the chart! This way, you can leave it up for the week while you’re focusing on a specific principle, and you don’t have to write on the word strip. Have any other great ideas?
