I really like the idea of labeling in Kindergarten. At the beginning of the year we use labeling in as part of Writer's Workshop. It is an important part of pre-writing.
Now that it is Spring, labeling is so easy compared to writing a whole sentence! As part of our Non-Fiction Writing Unit, I am teaching my students to label ~ just like in Science Books.
Today is the second time we have
labeled the parts of a flower. The first time was in conjunction with our Weekly Reader. That was simply filling in the blanks. This activity is so much more meaningful because they are "building" and labeling their own flower.
They did a great job!
