Labeling Lesson

Y'all...I got this fabulous labeling activity from Abby at The Inspired Apple!  This was TONS of fun!  First, I explained to my kinders what a label is why they are helpful.  We looked at several things that had labels on them.  We discussed that labels tell us information about something.  I know this will help my kiddos with writing in their journals.  Once we labeled our teddy, they labeled...ME!!  Oh my goodness!!  So. Much. Fun.  We had a blast!  I totally got this fun idea from Abby too!  Check out the fun going on in our room!






labeling things in our classroom...of course we can't spell "shelf"...so I told them if they could label it with the first sound that was good for me!

These kiddos labeled the shapes on my table and they found the shape word on our calendar and labeled it that way!  

We all labeled our own teddy cut-out

  20. Brilliant idea! We use labeling with our writing program throughout the first semester. It helps them create their own sentences. I love the idea of labeling the teacher and using the first sound only. Great idea!
