Charts and Poster Continued

Jennifer over at Lifelong Learning asked an awesome question about what to do with charts and such when you run out of room or are done with them.

First of all, I don't display them all forever. I only display what we are currently working on. I like for people to be able to walk in my room and be able to instantly know what we are learning about at the current time. I try to avoid clutter but WOW is that a challenge! I hang the ones I love on a hanger with clips in case I need to refer back for review or something. I keep them in  my coat closet where they are kept safe and sound.
 Mine look something like this but are white.

I like to make them with the kids so I always do them over the next year. I do cheat a little and do some of the bubble letters and drawings before hand. 

You could keep pictures of charts and keeps them in mini photo albums in the kids tubs. The kids can grab them out for a reference or you can send a kid to reread one if they are struggling with something. Like - I see you are struggling with sitting in EEKK position for buddy reading. Why don't you go review the EEKK position in your photo albums. I've always said I'm going to do this but I just get too busy.

 Something cute and little like these albums would be good.

What do you do with your charts? 
How do you organize/store them 
and how long do you hang them?
